My corporate work focuses on improving relationship dynamics, satisfaction and progression for women in the workplace, and I show how an understanding of our evolved predispositions can provide effective strategies for women to excel, and to find the work-life balance that suits them.

I also work with leaders to demonstrate the ways in which women differ on average from men, both in their approach to working relationships, and in their work ambitions and aspirations. We can then look at ways leaders can help female team members optimise their productivity, make the most of their assets, and achieve satisfaction and progression at work.

Covert Competition: How Can Women Stop Holding Each Other Back?

Covert Competition: How Can Women Stop Holding Each Other Back?

Women tend compete with those of their own gender differently from men. In this  session I’ll explain how this has led to some positives but many difficulties for women in male-stereotypical workplaces, and I’ll lead a discussion of how we can improve things to help women collaborate effectively and succeed at work.

The Professional & Gender Identity Conflict in Women

The Professional & Gender Identity Conflict in Women

There will also be information and support for fathers, and for leaders to help them support parents within their teams.
