Working mothers

She looked radiant. Her skin was glowing. It was the healthiest and the best I had seen her since we met ten months ago. It is funny how things work out, where we meet and connect with people. We met in the bathroom of a hotel, not exactly the ideal networking space. A Senior Executive,…

Stop. Reset. GO

Calling

I don’t know about you, but this year has rushed by. Going a million miles an hour, busy being busy. And it’s funny how things work out. Somewhere in October I suddenly crashed.

The leaky female talent pipeline.

Phebe Cho

In 2016 I became a statistic. I decided to leave the corporate ladder, the one I had dedicated so much of my life to climb. I started to redefine what work could be. I joined 780,000 women around the world who in 2016 made the same decision. I am part of the leaky talent pipeline. So what…

Attention all career focused women: STOP doing this one thing

gender parity

“But I don’t have enough experience. I know they want someone with a strong background in corporate finance” I sat, watching my private coaching client explain why she wasn’t right for the role. She had just spent the last ten minutes outlining what was wrong with that business unit. They were amidst a huge transition…

“Mummy, it sports carnival day!” my 5-year-old, squealing with delight as she pranced around the house. I broke into a smile. From year one to six, I came last in every sports carnival race there was. Everyone had crossed the finish line, and there I was, huffing and puffing down the 100-meter track. Every year,…
