A Confidence Boost for Female Leaders

There are some excellent articles on women in leadership in this week’s Sheridan Weekly. One feature looks at how women in senior positions can profoundly change a company’s culture, while another looks frankly at the reluctance some men feel around mentoring aspiring female leaders. Both pieces are well worth a read.

As someone who has worked in the City for many years, I am acutely aware of some of the difficulties women face in getting into and thriving in senior roles there, as elsewhere. Whilst there has been a marked improvement in the past few years, corporate life is still a challenging environment.

Women hold less than a quarter of FTSE 100 directorships. At Sheridan Resolutions, we support women to think about their style, approach and confidence in the workplace and provide insight and guidance on how to best get to where they want to be. Sometimes the need is for one-to-one coaching or mentoring to focus on specific needs and to gain insight as to how best to interact with colleagues and behavioural styles to address.

This gives them the confidence they need to approach their careers from a new angle, with a momentum that can carry them further within a company than they may have previously thought possible.
