Are you suffering from Imposter syndrome?

Mar 12 2015

Simone was a successful Marketing Manager, well respected and high achieving – she had outperformed her counterparts on a number of occasions, and yet, she was constantly waiting to be found out, and lived in terror of the day when someone was going to walk into her office and ask what on earth she thought she was doing in such a high powered job.
And it’s not just those in senior positions who suffer from these kind of feelings, research shows that around 70% of us feel we aren’t worthy of the job we are doing at some point in our careers. Research by Pauline Clance and Suzanne Imes reveals that an estimated 2 out of every 5 successful people consider themselves frauds. Why is this and, why are women, in particular, more vulnerable to something commonly known as Imposter Syndrome?

Flexible work opportunities for mums with The Home Club

Sep 28 2014

I know a lot of you mums out there would love to go back to work. You may have a child and feel like there is just something holding you back from getting back to work, like child-care, or that sudden lack of flexibility you will suffer from stepping back into the office.

Believe me, I have lost count of the number of times my mum has told me she gave up a brilliant career to mother the four of us, as well as 2 step brothers. She claims that she doesn’t have the time to go back to work anymore, to which I respond “What if there was something you really wanted to do? Would you find the time?”
