Advice:How to Climb the Ladder

By Janet Graham - Last updated: Monday, February 21, 2011

This is another piece of advice from the series "Advice:How to Climb the Ladder" which was written by Janet McFarland as part of the October 2010 series by the Globe and Mail which comprised a number of articles about Women in Power. The component written by Ms McFarland comprised advice from a number of senior Canadian women which I thought was excellent. The following is from Sheelagh Whittaker who is a Director Imperial Oil and Standard Life.   "Embrace opportunity. You need to be brave. You need to take risks. You have to find confidence. And if you don't feel it, you need to fake it."    I would love you to share your thoughts and comments in the Comments section below!!

I am enjoying it and believe it provides much food for thought and discussion!!   I would be delighted to hear what you think of it. Please share your thoughts in the Comments section below.
