Preliminary women’s leadership survey results are in! Although the sample size is still small right now, what I’m seeing so far is really interesting.

What I’m seeing is that there is a lot of commonality in the challenges we are all facing, but when it comes to what we need help with, the responses get more specific and varied.

The third main question we asked was: what is the biggest change you could make over the next six months that would increase your impact and/or decrease your levels of stress and overwhelm?

This question had the widest variety of answers, with no conclusive frontrunner.

What does this mean?

Well, again, this is a small sampling, but what I think this speaks to is the fact that, while we share similar challenges, there is no one size fits all solution. We all have different circumstances that require different types of attention.

What I do see, however, as a coach, is that there is a common set of tools and a methodology that is flexible enough to apply to many situations, circumstances, needs and aspirations, because at core, the challenges are very similar.

And the first myth that I want to debunk specifically addresses one of these challenges.

And that myth is:

Myth #1: That motherhood means taking a hit to your career.

I can’t wait to deconstruct this myth and give you some suggestions on what you can do to bust through it.
