Almost half (47.1%) of all employed persons in Australia are women.*
However, women still only hold (14.1%) of chair positions and (26.8%) of directorships, Why? The reason often comes down to inadvertently tackling the symptoms and not the cause.

Understand the cause to support women
The way women perceive themselves and their role, both at work and at home can have an impact on leadership. In wanting to do the “right thing”, women often “over-think”, “over-care” and sometimes even “over-control” leading to a feeling that they are failing with standards set so high on so many fronts.
This often leads to burnout or a “confidence gap” when they feel they are not meeting these standards at home or in the workplace.
By the time women reach middle management, they are often exhausted and start questioning their ability. They are already working so “hard”, they simply can’t see how they could possibly go to the next level. This is where the real issue lies.
To help more women strive for and attain senior leadership roles, organisations need to understand the cause and provide support to help change the way women perceive themselves and their roles in life. A leadership program needs to address these causes to affect a transformational shift in women.
