Coaching For Womenwith Nanette Gamily
As of 2017, a US Department of Labor survey showed that women make up 51% of the job market, mostly in entry-level positions with very few rising to the managerial level.
In fact, a recent Lean In and McKinsey study stated that only 29% of women hold vice-president positions and only 20% ascend to the C-suite.
However, some companies are making equality and diversity CEO-level issues, creating equal pay and promotional opportunities with changes to corporate culture, business objectives, and recruiting strategies.
A few pioneering CEO’s have gone a step further, partnering with organizations such as United Nations to keep the conversation in the forefront of world leaders.
Despite increased global awareness, women still find limited promotional opportunities and earn only about 80% of what their male counterparts make.
And even worse, women who have reached career success in male-dominated areas such technology, are leaving their careers early, citing frustration and stagnation as top reasons.
Are you feeling discouraged? Don’t be.
It’s tough when you see the brass ring, but you feel like it’s an unattainable goal or you don’t know how to navigate the corporate political landscape to get it. Believe me, I know.
I entered the business world with nothing more than a degree in Art History and a lot of drive and ambition.
But I broke the glass ceiling and became a technology executive in one of the world’s largest software companies.
And if I can make it to the top of my game then so can you.
There are self-help gurus that taut the ideas that women must change who they are, act like men, work harder or lean into the point of exhaustion in order to succeed in business.
But I will let you in on a secret…you don’t.
Career success requires a keen self-awareness, a clear understanding of your strengths, an ability to recognize and navigate corporate politics, and a willingness to build and apply the necessary skills that will give you an edge over everyone else.
Trends come and go, but history shows that businesses consistently look for leaders who exhibit assertiveness, self-confidence, directness, poise, situational awareness, team building, and motivational skills regardless of gender.
Now, you may be wondering whether you possess any of the qualities, necessary to get ahead in your career. But let me put your mind at ease, you do.

Nanette was also my personal coach during a very tough period when I was working through selling my piece of the business and returned to a corporate leadership role. Nanette was able to not only guide me through the process, but I felt like I had support and clarity to make the right decisions for my career journey. I highly recommend Nanette for both personal executive coaching and sales leadership coaching!Amy Fowler Stadler
