Connect2Grow: Mastering Your Mindset For Personal And Career Growth

Several reports have shown there is a severe shortage of women in leadership roles in the workplace, marketplace, and positions of power.

We understand that there are many factors, including systemic structures and historical bias, that add to the lack of women leaders in both the workplace and marketplace. But we also believe that as women, we can help ourselves and each other to confront these systemic biases and embrace our call to lead.

It starts with us adopting a different mindset from the lies we have been told.

Subconsciously or not, you may have been raised to believe that you don’t deserve to be in a position of power, or you’ve been told that you lack the proper skills to be a leader. You may also have been raised to think that as a woman, wanting more is a bad thing, or just maybe your childhood experience is still playing a big part in your mind.

We know that this kind of mindset can block you from going after leadership roles, especially in industries dominated by men, including Tech and Finance. This thought pattern is responsible for stopping many women from getting to their next level of success and leadership.

To move forward, we need to uncover and conquer this belief system, and then create a plan to support and keep us accountable towards achieving our goals.

The Rise and Lead Connect2Grow Mentoring Circle “Mastering Your Mindset For Personal and Career Growth”, has been designed to help you uncover the patterns that are unique to you and learn the right strategies needed to overcome them, so you can stay focused and committed towards achieving your professional and career success.

Our Connect2Grow Mentoring Circle event will kick off with a greet and mingle, welcome drinks and snacks, followed by a content-rich presentation from Ebere Akadiri and a guest expert. There will be a ‘mentoring circle’ time with peers and a dedicated facilitator to help you uncover and overcome your “inner voices” that have been stopping you from reaching your career and business goals.
