Just imagine you just found out that you are let go after six months after your hire date. Just imagine that you have just been told that the hiring manager chose “the other candidate,” and yet, you are great at what you do. There is no feedback, hint, or indication suggesting that you were not the “perfect fit” for the role. You are crushed! You ask your boss, “What do I need to do to get promoted,” and he hands you all his non-promotable projects, administrative tasks, and items that will move his career forward, but not necessarily yours. Sound familiar? Now you are really in a pickle! You now have more work than ever, you are burned out disappointed, and unhappy with most things in life.
What if you had strategies for overcoming age bias, and disparities, managing the fact that you are overpromised and underserved and being used as a doormat for others' success. What if you find out after you have done a leadership program that tasks you with endless hours of non-promotable work, only to find out, you were passed over? What you believed to be true was a lie.
The lasted statistic tells a bigger story. Women continue to leave the workforce and are having a demanding time recouping two years of COVID’s hurricane of events. From February of 2020 to January of 2022, 1.1 million women left the workforce and represent 63 percent of all jobs lost.
The game-changing book, soon released, called “Thinking Differently” is a change in basic assumptions for the working woman. “Thinking Differently” authored by Dina Readinger and Sharon Weinstein is packed with life stories of tragedy to triumph and gives specific strategies that answer this age-old question, “How do I get where I want to go?”
Women are tired of waiting for opportunities and struggle for creating their own success. Women must develop a new mindset, get out of the blame game, and take ownership for what they want and deserve. We are no longer the victim but the conqueror and no one is in your way, except you, if you let it.
“Thinking Differently” is packed real-life success stories from women who span the globe. The revelation from six years and over six hundred Diagnostic Thinking Groups proves that all women carry the same fears, angst, desires, and similar symptoms related to their career stalls.
