The gender confidence gap has long been a hotly debated topic. But do women need to be more confident or do the outdated behaviours of some organisations need to change? This book discusses these issues and how, in today’s workplace culture, working hard and delivering well is no longer enough to get a woman who is interested in growing her career the success she dreams of. Instead she needs to demonstrate not just competency but also confidence, courage and credibility. To improve their chances of career success, women need to get comfortable with being visible in their organisation and industry. Sharing successes, stepping up to take new responsibilities and getting their voice heard.
