The 360 Leadhership Podcast, Episode 124, 08 May 2024 by Lucy Gernon

Do you ever look at some of the men in more senior leadership roles and think how did they got that job? This is something I hear from my clients a lot.

These women are positive, collaborative, optimistic, always striving to improve, helpful, ambitious, and humble. Yet, despite their qualities, they often find themselves overlooked for recognition and opportunities compared to their male counterparts. Can you relate?

Over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of working closely with women in leadership roles, ranging from seasoned executives to those aiming to break into their first directorial position. Regardless of their level, I’ve noticed a common obstacle that holds these women back—not just from promotions, but from being seen as great leaders who can rally others behind their vision and make a significant impact in their industry.

That’s why in this week’s episode, I delve into this crucial issue. Join me as we uncover the barriers preventing women from breaking through the glass ceiling and explore strategies to overcome them. It’s time to empower ourselves and pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable future in leadership.
