Why We Work With Women in the Workplace
Laurie Battaglia, the CEO of Aligned at Work™ entered the workplace in the 1970’s, when women at work had their challenges just getting through the day, getting promoted, and gaining respect. She has continued to mentor women at work over the 35+ years of her career. The workplace can be a tricky place. And as much as things have changed, women have unique challenges, different from men, when it comes to excelling in the workplace.
Whether it’s determining what they REALLY want from work, asking for feedback on derailers and strengths, or displaying self-confidence, women tend to think and operate differently from men.
Laurie and Joseph make a great combo when working with women at work. Joseph spent his 35+ year career working in the field of nuclear medicine as a technologist, where more women than men work, and leaders tend to be women as often as men. Both bring their perspectives on the ways that women can be self-confident and understand how to use their personalities and strengths to lead others, to gain promotions, and be fully Aligned at Work™.
How We Work With Women in the Workplace
Women’s Workplace Wisdom Circles
The “circle” concept has been around for hundreds of years. Women tend to gather in groups to discuss their problems and situations. They seek bonds and conversation with other women.
Workplace Wisdom Circles are formal meetings, monthly for 10 months. Starting with an orientation to know what to expect and how they operate, and then gaining commitment and buy-in, the Women’s Workplace Wisdom Circles are places where women discuss their common issues with the help of a professional facilitator, Laurie Battaglia.
Common topics include:
- What’s holding you back?
- Energy leadership
- Building self awareness
- Creating your career strategy
- Using LinkedIn for online networking
- Asking for feedback
- Building self confidence
- Women and power
Laurie and Joseph, both Associate Certified Coaches through the International Coach Federation, provide coaching for established and emerging women leaders. Women can choose to have Laurie alone, or Laurie & Joseph together for two perspectives.
