Women in Business

Making 'it' work for women in business and helping women 'figure stuff out' is at the essence of Clearbird Coaching and Consulting.


The challenge of retaining and growing female talent is well-documented and discussed and is on the agenda of many large organisations. Forward thinking organisations recognise that supporting women through a challenging phase in their career and and helping them to grow the skills they need for Leadership go a long way towards closing the gap in gender diversity and retaining key talent.


For professional women, if only we could wave a magic wand to fix many of the common themes that come up again and again for many women in the workplace and even more especially if they are juggling young families:-

  • The confidence gap
  • Building emotional resilience
  • Self belief
  • Self promotion
  • Assertiveness (without being considered aggressive)
  • Dealing with the constant struggle to 'do it all' while balancing other commitments at home and elsewhere.


It can be hard for women in the workplace – any workplace, be it home or office- to get ‘it’ right and 'do it all'. But what is getting it right?


At Clearbird, we know that 'it' is different for everyone and before we work with clients to help them figure out how to make 'it' work, we need to figure out what 'it' is. What is success? What is your definition of success- both at work and at home? How can you make all the pieces of the jigsaw sit together in some kind of equilibrium? What is holding you back?


The different career stages present different challenges. So many people aren't aware that what works for early career progression - developing technical expertise, getting the job done and delivering results - is not necessarily the same as you progress through middle and senior management. To move towards leadership roles, the game changes and influencing, managing stakeholders, self promotion, owning your personal development and growth are all as important as getting the job done.   


We support women in in taking control of their career and lives. Very often this means addressing some of the behavioural and practical things that are holding you back. Equally often this means taking account of the organisational culture and perceptions and how we can influence that. Owning your career and your choices means that anything is possible.



'Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you are probably right'. Henry Ford


Getting it right is defining what works for you and setting yourself up to succeed on that basis. Particularly for working mums, finding a sense of balance, setting up the right infrastructure and letting go of the any guilt to enable you to perform at your best are good places to start.
