The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris. Suzanne will be talking about the lessons from her latest book: ‘The Con Job: Getting Ahead for Competence in a World Obsessed with Confidence’.
In her work advising companies and individuals, she noticed that not progressing at work is often blamed on ‘lack of confidence’ but she felt this excuse was a total con job.
It misses genuine competence, conveniently rewards the status quo and distracts us from understanding the context of what really drives confidence. This hoax means we fail to get the right people in the best jobs.
In the session, Suzanne will be exploring:
● Capitalise on what you are doing well to silence the ‘imposter’.
● Convince others to value your hard-earned experience.
● Redefine confidence so it doesn’t continue to advantage the ‘status quo’.
Here's some background on our amazing guest speaker for this session:
Dr. Doyle-Morris’ doctorate from the University of Cambridge looked at the experiences of women in male-dominated fields.
Over the last 25 years, Doyle-Morris has helped organisations improve their gender balance, particularly at a senior level. She has helped women move into senior roles at 50 organisations in the UK, Europe and the US.
In that time, she has also written two other books - ‘Beyond the Boys’ Club: Achieving Career Success as a Woman Working in a Male-Dominated Field’ and 'Female Breadwinners: How They Make Relationships Work and Why they are the Future of the Modern Workplace’.
Before the event, you can also check out some of her best tips from the stellar careers of her clients on her YouTube channel.
