Moving Beyond the Glass Ceiling

Question:  Are you where you want and need to be in your career, company, or organization?
If your career is stagnating, maybe it’s not ‘what’ is keeping you from the top. Maybe it’s who is keeping you from the top. And, that ‘who’ could be you! Dr Indigo and her circle of experts will provide a performance GPS to success.

Are You Aware?

Despite years of advances for women, many qualified women don’t get the jobs or opportunities they want or deserve. Based on a variety of reasons both internal and external factors can sabotage a woman’s success – unless she takes a more strategic approach to her career and plays the game that exists in all organizations.

You need to break through the glass ceiling but there is nothing that shows you how? Then this is a MUST JOIN session for you!  This forum is uniquely designed to offer hands-on skill building sessions as a cohort. The one day event is filled with workshops culminated with table top discussions by leading experts. It’s a personal and intimate programme with limited seats for:

  • High performance women with a desire to be globally competitive
  • Women in management or leadership (independent or corporate)
  • High potential women seeking growth opportunities and advancement
  • A woman who’ve worked hard but hasn’t seen a success trajectory despite all her efforts

Despite years of advances in both social and corporate policy, many qualified women don’t get the opportunities they want or deserve. Misperceptions, stereotypes, and misplaced emotions on the part of either sex can still sabotage a woman’s career hopes—unless she takes a more strategic approach to her career and plays the game that exists in all organisations.

This forum is revolutionary in helping women succeed based on Dr Indigo’s research philosophy of playing the game by the unwritten rules. To get more of what you want and less of what doesn’t align with your goals, we explore the psychology of why women perform and behave in ways that may be counterproductive based on societal and gender expectations, stereotypes and misperceptions. We look at fear and how some women work from a fear of success while some may work from a fear of failure which limits career progression or sustainable growth. As a cohort, you learn about self for self-management, and how to engage others to overcome obstacles and remove barriers.

Dr Indigo and Indigo’s Circle of Professionals are Offering:

Programme Length:  1-Day Forum with Experiential Workshops

Dates:  Thursday, 28th June 2018 – 8:00 am to 6:00 pm w/ Evening Event

Venue:  Hotel Fort Canning Singapore – 11 Canning Walk, Singapore 178881

Forum Agenda:  Download Full Agenda

Module One:

I Am a Woman: That Makes Me Uniquely Qualified to Lead

This session is the foundation of the entire programme. We examine the history of women leaders and the triumphs and challenges that they have encountered. We look at the psychological, social and cultural differences between men and women based on acceptable norms and mores to dispel myths and stereotypes. Participants will examine whether they lead out of a ‘fear of success’ or a ‘fear of failure’. We will investigate behaviors that are career limiting and identify how to get more of what you want both personally and professionally with confidence.

Module Two: Moving from the Middle to the Top

This session takes a poignant look at organizations and the “unwrittenrules” that often derail careers. Participants will explore why many professional women are in the middle and what it takes to move to the top. We examine why many women have a difficult time achieving ongoing success based on a lack of understanding ‘the game’ and the rules that are often unbeknownst to women, especially first generational successes. We’ll discuss how to remove obstacles and barriers.

Module Three: Developing Bench Strength

Developing your strength and understanding bench strength for your team are required for sustainable success. Is it logical for a professional to get into her car and set out for a new destination without directions, goals, or even a map? Often professionals will conduct their career progression without a path or clear direction based on their prior successes. However, what got you to one point may not work for your future career destination as competition steepens and the funnel narrows. This session will help you create a career map based on bench strength for your organisation and personally. This ultimately supports retention.

Lunch:  Relax and Connect

Afternoon Table Top Discussions with Indigo’s Circle of Experts:

    • Resolving Conflict through Assertiveness – Eliza Quek
      This session is a confidence builder to get more of what you want and need without feeling guilty, pushy or any negative feelings that inhibit getting desired results. In Asia, harmony is valued which often leads to avoiding conflicts because of the fear of hurting others, damaging relationships and making the situation worse. There is also the fear of confronting someone who is senior and demotivating staff by providing candid feedback. Participants learn the various ways to manage conflict to a positive conclusion.


    • Setting Your Intentions Based on the Butterfly Effect – Grace Chew
      Women need to be able to say no more and give themselves permission to make tough decisions that may not be popular keeping in mind that what she does or doesn’t do have a rippling effect and consequence. A woman professional should be able to take many things in consideration, i.e. planning, making decisions and taking certain actions to achieve personal or overall goals. Based on the Butterfly Effect, we will examine how decisions and actions impact your career and personal life both long and short-term.


    • Create Your Brand: Tell Your Story – Sarah Lewis
      Ever wondered how to create a good first impression through digital screens? Unsure of how to project professionalism, but still feel yourself? This mini-workshop will help you identify the themes of your personal brand, give you simple branding principles to follow and get practical about easy actions you can take right now. Whether you’re a small business owner or working in a large corporation, you will walk away with a low maintenance personal branding plan that projects just the impression you want.


    • Motivating and Influencing through Persuasion – Patrick Lee
      It’s not enough to work hard, you have to sell yourself with integrity and authenticity. Participants learn to motivate and influence others based on using power and not abusing power. Participants will learn to galvanize and inspire by engaging and involving others for synergy. We also examine manipulation versus persuasion and how to harness the latter. We will discuss using Influence Triangle for more effective persuasion. We often start with persuasion by offering our opinions, facts and logic to argue what we believe is right or beneficial. However, the fine art of influencing embraces many skills and you will be considerably more persuasive if the techniques are mastered.


    • Career Management and Development for Success – Dr. Vivienne Hunt
      Dr Hunt will speak about her doctoral research findings regarding professional women which are relevant to many work place settings. Her research found that women who had built successful career trajectories had three common attributes. They were competent, connected and confident. She will focus on the last two, the importance of being connected to networks where people can build social capital and some tactics to help develop confidence. Through a fun exercise you will explore your connectedness.

In 2012, 2013 and 2014, her US company was recognized as one of the top 500 America’s Fastest Growing Companies by INC. Magazine. She grew a homebased training practice into a thriving multimillion dollar performance management consulting firm. Dr Indigo is admired for her down-to-earth methods and techniques, but perhaps more known as an authentic leader who tackles organisational development and workforce topics.  Stateside to abroad–from Atlanta, Georgia to Shanghai, China–she delivers a message and philosophy that is insightful; thus, resonating with people at every tier of their career or within an organisation.

As the author of Playing by the Unwritten Rules I: Moving from the Middle to the Top and Playing by the Unwritten Rules II: From a Job Defense to a Career Offense, she is a leading authority on career management.

Dr Indigo recently launched 4D Performance in Malaysia, which mirrors her US company. Based on her research, she believes that Asia is primed to be the next global economic power. However, she also believes that there must be a shift in how the Asian workforce is prepared for this growth and global competitiveness. She further believes that a foundation built on performance and productivity will create sustainability. This means leveraging diversity, creating inclusion, developing an agile workforce that is empowered, creative and life-long learners. It is not what a person knows but what s/he is willing to learn that will move an organisation forward. She received her Ph.D. in Values-Driven Leadership from Benedictine University and holds a MA in Organizational Development from Webster University. She was a contributing columnist for Inc.
