Gender Pay Gap Part 2: Real Life and Real Answers
I am so passionate about the gender pay gap because I see it every day. It is not a headline, it is not a monthly leadership topic at work or a philosophical social problem.
IT IS A REAL LIFE, EVERYDAY PROBLEM.
I will tell you some solutions down below—but first….
A client of mine is currently at a $50,000 gap in her pay compared to her male colleagues.
(We are going to fix it!)
$50,000!!! That is $200 per day- every work day she slips behind.
She was told they would take care of it over the next 2 years.
The ONE BIG THING this year I saw.
The ONE BIG THING YOU MUST STOP DOING!
My 2018 BIG REVEAL!
This one thing cripples more careers–
Costs more money—
Stifles more souls–
Causes unwanted pain—
It actually hurts more— when it is intended to stop pain, it does the opposite– the pain increases – until it is just too painful— and then– life is difficult– and decisions are nearly impossible– you are captured by fear!
And I know why it backfires and I know how to stop it’s path of destruction.
Here’s what happens when you STOP the destruction–
“I don’t know if I’ll ever be promoted after going for it 3 times and 3 No’s”
The woman on the other end of the call, a 54 Year old with over 25 years of excellent experience in her field in large corporations. She felt permanently stuck. At her age, retirement and fulfilling her dreams is now on the MUST DO NOW list.
She talked about her bosses, boss not being supportive of her moving up.
She talked about her boss being a micromanaging bully who shames her in meetings.
She needs a plan and an avenue for her career growth.
She can’t wait for others to be in charge of her career.
You Really Must Network Like this for Your Career
We have all heard it, “networking is essential for success.”
I talk about networking all the time with my clients. Heck, it brought me so many opportunities and successes that I can’t even imagine keeping my head down and ignoring this basic essential success tool.
As a matter of fact, networking is not a tool. It is life to a career. Like oxygen and blood, your body needs to live, networking is essential to the LIFE of your career.
SO many smart, hard-working, (potentials) put it off, don’t do it, shrug off the awkwardness,
“that’s only for sales people”, they say.
