Looking for your next step but can’t find it at your current company? Then walk away, you’re next step is somewhere else. Career advice from an outstanding woman leader, and chairman of an ASX top 200 company.

Many women search for new challenging opportunities, present ideas to their managers, suggest innovations to their bosses and network enthusiastically to progress their careers. But all too often women find that even with all this exemplary career investment, they aren’t offered the opportunities they know they are ready for.  Elizabeth Alexander is the chaiman of CSL, a biopharmaceutical company that is one of the ASX top 200. As many of you will know, this makes Alexander one of the six women chairing an ASX top 200 company. She’s the only woman on the CSL board, which she has been on for 20 years, and she’s worked in the finance industry her whole career – an industry rife with gender barriers and stereotypes.

Her advice is to women is to realise that the next step is elsewhere, and take it. She explains all in this article.

A snippet of the article:

I believe very much that people determine their own destiny, but if circumstances are not encouraging, then moving on is the answer.”

Of course this is just one idea from one woman… what’s your take? Should you stay or should you go if you want to get ahead?
