Aspire - Leadership for the future

‘The Unwritten Rules – What You Don’t Know Can Hurt Your Career’

Anna Barez-Brown,
Aspire Programme Leader & Executive Coach

Anna is a highly experienced Aspire executive coach and facilitator with over 10 years experience of working with board level executives and managers to improve the quality of leadership, business performance and communication.  Her clients include SAP, Yahoo, Microsoft, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, Linklaters, Freshfields LLP and KPMG.

According to a recent Catalyst report, “The number one thing people wish they had known in their career is about organisational politics, becoming visible, and advocating more for themselves, that “just” working hard is not enough to succeed”. Without political savvy skills, it may be that you can get overlooked on the career ladder and miss out on the credit for your ideas or achievements. Anna will share ideas and strategies on how to grow your skills in being highly politically savvy while acting from high integrity and a psychology of consensus.


Building Blocks for the Girls

We have to believe inside that we deserve to be where we are, and to achieve what we have achieved. But we also have to understand that we cannot hold a belief that society owes us anything and instead make our own destinies, and likewise complain that nothing will ever change without understanding that we can control our own reality.
