Last week I released my whitepaper: The 3 Barriers to Women's Progression, outlining the nuanced barriers that women face in advancing their careers.  Some of these barriers exist at a societal level, some at an organisational level and some at a personal level.  That is, the barriers we ourselves impose that get in our own way. So today I want to share with you one tip, from the whitepaper as to what you can do to take charge of your career and smash those barriers.

Sharon Peake

Founder, CEO and Executive Coach, Shape Talent Ltd

I am an experienced business leader and executive coach with over 20 years' experience in global blue chip businesses focused on career development for individuals and strategic people management for organisations.

Over the course of my career I have interviewed thousands of individuals and helped organisations select and grow the best talent. I know what helps careers, and I know what hinders careers. I truly believe that the world would be a better place with as many women as men running companies, which led me to establish Shape Talent - a gender diversity coaching and consulting business geared at accelerating gender equality in business and beyond.

In my coaching work I specialise in helping women leaders and executives to achieve their potential, navigate career transitions and ensure a fulfilling and rewarding career. As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist I bring a psychological perspective to my coaching, looking at the underlying factors that influence the way we behave and respond to situations. Where it helps the client I can use a range of psychometric assessments to bring greater clarity and self-awareness to patterns of behaviour. My clients describe me as insightful, open, warm, encouraging and focused on ensuring the client’s success.
