Helping Women Shape a Career Path and a Life That Works.
Williams, Caitlin P.
This paper discusses a model that guides women in practicing key attitudes and behaviors that will help them to succeed in our new economy. It focuses on today's critical workplace competencies while encouraging a rich and textured personal life. It responds to four challenges that women need to pay attention to: acknowledging and capitalizing on their personal resilience; creating opportunities to demonstrate their skills; shaping a personal life that is alive and nourishing; and continuing to move toward healthy, long-term career and life success. The model uses 4 themes and 10 strengths to address these challenges, all of which are described in the paper. It also includes some guided questions that career development practitioners may find useful in career-focused discussions with their female clients. (MKA)
