PLANS & PRICING
Don’t limit yourself- Before anything else, make sure you aren’t limiting yourself. Very often, due to internalised societal standards, you may be passing up opportunities or accepting tasks you otherwise wouldn’t have. Don’t fall into that trap, because the first step of success is putting yourself out there and being confident.
Don’t say yes to everything- This may seem counterintuitive but don’t say yes to everything. If you think you are consistently being given tasks just because you are a woman (such as organising a birthday cake/an employee retreat), learn to say no. Make sure you set clear boundaries and take on only as much as you can handle. Learn the art of saying no.
Use your strengths- You don’t have to say yes to every task but use your skills to your advantage. If you are more emotionally aware than your colleagues or better at planning things, share your insights with your boss. This will be seen as initiative and will put you out there.
Support other women- Support and stand up for other women. Try and find a mentor- a successful woman at your workplace. If you are at a senior position, consider mentoring a junior colleague. Learn from each other's experiences.
Fake it till you make it - Above all else, be confident- of your skills and work. Don’t shy away from standing up for what you believe in and put yourself on the map.
