Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for ambitious corporate women who expect more from their careers.
My guest today is the fabulous Jaime Chamberlain, Head of Strategy LATAM at Speyside Group, specialists in emerging markets, corporate affairs and public policy.
Jaime has come on the show today to talk about the impact working with me, as her Executive Coach, has had.
When we started coaching, Jaime had just been promoted to a Senior Leadership position and was looking for coaching support to help her navigate her various strategic and leadership challenges she now faced.
In this ep, I asked Jaime for her own career advice, should you be feeling unrecognised in your current job. Here's what she said:
"Be proactive - don't settle if you're unhappy at work. Get help! Speak to Rebecca! No-one cares about your progress as much as you so. No one else is going to help you - it's up to you to look for a new opportunity."
More from Jaime:
"Your [coaching] work Rebecca has facilitated by own sense of discovery: you've guided me to make good decisions better aligned to my goals and me."
"In our sessions, it was important to reframe my skills for my new role and crucially, learning to value those skills. The work we did on goals and KPIs was new; being held accountable by you Rebecca to those KPIs and timeframes was invaluable."
"You taught me Rebecca about how to manage up: 'What are the expectations of this client or leader?' And you helped me dig deep into what these people really wanted so I could really understand what made each individual tick. Those strategies have been so helpful, I share those insights with everyone Rebecca!"
"I'm a lot more confident now; I am managing client expectations better; I am being more proactive in managing the team more effectively; and I understand my own boundaries with work... it's been an empowering process."
