WHY WOMEN DON'T MAKE IT
While the majority of college graduates are women, we make up 25% of senior managers and executives at S&P 500 companies and only 4.4% of CEOs.
According to Bain & Company, the gender gap persists because external factors create a more difficult path to the top for women. Cultural norms result in unconscious bias, which becomes a major obstacle to advancement. Work-life integration is tough trade off when women are more likely to be the primary parent. These factors erode women’s aspiration and confidence to get to the top.
THE HARD ROUTE
Getting through the obstacles requires not only the right skills but also strong will and commitment.
As a climber (both on the corporate ladder and on the real mountain), I realized that having a seasoned guide, or a coach, made a big difference. There were coaches who were familiar with the terrain and who knew the different ways to the top who helped me fast-track my climb, perfect my technique, and broaden my mindset.
I started Chantree.coach to reach any women who are looking for a guide to prepare them for the long hard route.
CLIMB WITH ME
Finding the right coach is not easy. Most of well-known coaching websites require a huge financial commitment. I believe that we need to get to know each other more deeply to find the right fit first.
Let's meet up (virtual or in-person) first. I am down to grab coffee, take a walk, or rock climbing if you are based in Seattle. Or if you are far away, let's grab a relax time on do a video call.
In this form, tell me your situation and aspiration and we can go from there.
