When work becomes overwhelming, she calls her executive coach, Anna Rasmussen . "I can't recommend this enough. When you run a business, you don't necessarily have anyone looking out for you, your progression and the demands on your time." Rasmussen helps her prioritise and clarify issues. "In the first session I cried solidly for four hours, which was very cathartic."
Introduction to blend:
Last year Guidant Group and Anna Rasmussen launched a research project called Keeping Women In. We asked 250 high potential UK-based working mothers to tell us about their lives inside and outside of work and specifically what employers need to do to support them to reach their full career potential. The results of Anna’s research are based on the concept of achieving a sustainable work-life blend.
New research has shown that a woman's work and home life are intrinsically linked - more of a blend, than a balancing act. Claire Cohen explains all:
Women want careers and businesses need women who want careers but there is the well-publicised and very real issue that all businesses face; the inability to retain key female talent.
