What success means to you - and how to get there

Apr 23rd, 2019

We all want to be successful but few of us take the time to pause and consider what it really means to achieve success in our own lives, but if we don’t take a moment to design our plan to success, how will we ever get there?

Success means different things to different people but how can you define what’s important to you and most importantly how do you get there?

We all want to be successful but few of us take the time to pause and consider what it really means to achieve success in our own lives, we’re often too busy looking for the next promotion, the bigger house, continued education, improved relationships or whatever it is we define as success, but if we don’t take a moment to design our plan to success, how will we ever get there?

It sounds dramatic but it will be a scenario familiar to many of us, we can end up climbing a different career ladder to the one we thought we would or following a different personal path to the one we envisioned, we can get even get all the way to the top to look down and not recognise where we are anymore. We can achieve major goals but they may not be the right ones.

So how do we follow the right path to success?

The most successful people are those with absolute clarity on what they’re trying to achieve, what success looks like to them - and no one else.

Most importantly we must ask ‘ What makes us happy’  and set goals and objectives based on those desires whilst also recognising where we have already seen success, how we can continue to build upon this and what’ve we can learn from those successes and about ourselves.

This is why our programme Tech Future Female Leaders exists…

To provide women in technology roles with the opportunity to develop and face and address challenges just like these, to answer questions like ‘ how do I define success’ and to change the narrative for women in an industry which is still heavily male dominated and in which success may still be largely defined on someone else’s terms.

Success is both a goal and journey, just 5% of senior tech roles in the UK are held by women and it’s not because they don’t have the right skills but it is because the right support network isn’t in place to grow the leaders of tomorrow.

If you’re a business committed to developing tech leaders or an individual looking to expand your leadership skills, knowledge and confidence then let’s talk about making a change together.

Cohort 3 of Tech Future Female Leaders starts September 2019, Applications open June 2019 for more information please contact Beckie Taylor hello@techreturners.com__
