How to ACCELERATE YOUR CAREER in 12 months or less 

  
Leadership is not for everyone and certainly not for the faint hearted. This is often the case for women in particular as we feel there are far too many barriers in our way – confidence and the courage to forge a leadership career, family and maternity/parental leave restrictions, carer responsibilities, work/life balance, workplace culture, lack of opportunities especially for career advancement within an existing organisation, discrimination, sexual harassment, often being paid less in comparison to male counterparts, being devalued for mid-senior management roles and   
 the lack of support faced by individuals. The list goes on...
