On International Women's Day I want to reflect on a conversation I had with a lovely lady earlier this week.
I have always been passionate in seeing potential in people and inspiring and motivating people to stretch themselves to try new options. I heard the sadness that this lady had in her voice as she thought she had no option but to retire at the age of 60 because she couldn't get a role in HR, after many years at a senior level.
We spoke about the options of being a consultant and smashed some myths about age and that you can have contol over the hours you work and when you work.
A few hours after this call she contacted me to say that she had now changed her LinkedIn profile from Retired to Consultant and was going to attend our workshop.
and this is why I love what I do. There is nothing better that somone having hope for a better future.
Have a great weekend.
