Are you a woman in STEM and feeling stuck and wondering how other women are navigating the male dominated workplaces? Unsure about your NEXT STEP in your career? You are not alone!
Having spent more that 25 years in the mining industry where i climbed the corporate ladder from being a PhD Researcher in Mineral Processing up to Vice President Level.
In addition, selected the most influential woman in Business and Government in the mining industry in South Africa and the whole Southern African regions, i decided to share my story in a book of Peak Performance strategies to succeed in a male dominated environment.
I was fortunate that i was selected for the International Women Forum Fellows Programme for 2018-2019. This allowed me to start the amazing journey of self-discovery, personal growth and development. The Programme selects 36 powerful leaders across the globe and they attend 3 sessions spread over an 8-month period including sessions at Harvard, Insead Business Schools. This impactful Programme allowed me to reflect, be vulnerable and started to see where I was stuck, triggered and insecure.
Attending other impactful development conferences , helped me to heal so that I could become my best self. I took the time to get to know me and found what I love to do. By connecting with my true self and inner wisdom, I’m able to feel more courageous and have found more meaning in my life.
One of the greatest lessons I learned along the way is that to be successful, it starts with Leading Self, which is about our mindset. Then leading and inspiring others, then finally creating Peak Performance businesses or careers. Today, my life and work is to serve others hence the birth of my Peak Performance with Patience Executive Leadership Coaching. I have also learnt that as a leader, there is a time to succeed and a time to fail, a time to be confident and a time to be humble. I owe everything I am today to the difficult and painful times I have gone through. In challenging times like now with the COVID-19, we need more leaders with courage, empathy and grit, to re-invent ourselves and unleash our teams potential.
