Now that weâ€™re in the second term of a new school year and 2012 edging closer, I know that many of you may well be considering your options in terms of returning to work or thinking about a career change that fits your lifestyle.
Many of the wonderful women I meet, who are in this position, have often forgotten what they enjoy, what they are good at and canâ€™t see how the skills they use in the everyday management of a family and a home could possibly be of any use going forward. Sometimes your self-esteem and self-confidence takes a bashing because you donâ€™t know what to offer in the world of work.
Well listen up ladies (and gents!) just in case youâ€™d forgotten what you’re good at here are 22 strengths, skills and qualities a woman returning to the workplace brings whether you know it or not.
Under each of the following write one example of how you have demonstrated this skill, strength or quality.
- Problem Solver
- Handling Emergencies
- Event Organization
- Time Manager
- Self Directed
- Stock Control
- Team Player
- Sense of Â Responsibility
- Strong Interpersonal Skills
So there you have it. Â Itâ€™s a starting point. I just wanted to demonstrate that you have a whole host of skills that are directly transferable. Iâ€™m sure you have many more. This is just a taste of the wonderful gifts you can bring to the workplace so donâ€™t feel you have nothing to offer â€“ instead celebrate your wonderful talents and abilities and share them with the world.
