I don't know when we are supposed to feel mature, I'm still waiting!
I do know that many of us find at some stage in life, we seek more value, more connection and more involvement in what matters to us, personally and professionally.
Doing what we know how to do
or were trained to do is simply not enough.
Often it is as we approach our 40th milestone that we are compelled to rethink how we do what we do and why. For me, it was 35 and then again at 45! Nobody said it was a one time deal.
Women's Unpack sets out to uncover what motivates you, to define those things and attach them to a tangible decision or goal.
We do that in three areas:
Seeking Purpose not Passion
Owning The Benefits of Maturity
Irrefutably Articulating 'You' - Personally and Professionally.
MATURITY IS AN ADVANTAGE TO EMPLOYERS
In employment terms mature women have heavy duty career/work experience under their belt by 40. We also know that women of a certain age have been historically disadvantaged when it comes to hireability.
There are advantages to maturity that make you are 'sure thing' as opposed to an untested one. Advantages that mean you have a plethora of evidence supporting your ability, achievements and contributions.
You most often know who you are and that often translates to knowing what you want.
Mature women offer a level of credibility
and personal development that is unmatched.
Finding the 'best cultural fit' is up to 50%
of hiring the criteria.
There is a renewed focus by employers on the importance of 'soft skills' I prefer to call them 'communication skills' as the former is little, I don't know, condescending perhaps.
Things such as empathy, inclusive leadership, lateral thinking, a mature ego, have been repackaged and allocated a far greater level of importance by employers when hiring the right candidate.
Employers have a renewed focus on 'soft skills'
but most women have been unprogrammed
in speaking about ourselves powerfully
in those terms.
