As Van Gogh once said, "If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."
Everyone grapples with self-doubt once in a while but when it’s left unchecked, the fear that fuels your doubt can drive you to be over-cautious and derail you from what you set out to accomplish. On the other hand, a positive perception of your self-worth can greatly improve your quality of life and help you advance on your career path.
However the journey of realizing your true professional value does not just stop at understanding your self-worth. You need to take this one step further by conveying this value to your boss, colleagues or recruiters so you get what you deserve and nothing less.
To know your worth and deal with self-doubt in a constructive manner, join us as our speaker shares how to measure your value in a professional setting, build confidence, and convey your true value to important stakeholders in your career journey.
Hi, my name is Joanna but you can call me Jo.I began my career as a scientist in R&D and worked in the chemicals sector here in Australia until I chose to do what many of us Aussies do and go travelling. When I got to London after visiting quite a few destinations along the way, I embarked on joining a pharmaceutical firm. But my career journey took a detour when a different proposition was offered into the domain of recruitment through them.
I decided. Every decision we make is a choice.
And so, my recruitment career journey began.
After working in agency, exec search, in-house and RPO, I decided that assisting people with their career was really what I enjoyed within this sphere.
This is how Protoscience was born. After attending a self development seminar in 2018, thanks to Success Resources, I took the brave step. Then more officially in 2020, whilst still working in TA, I kick started my global coaching practice. This brings me to today. I help people at a stage where they want to move up in their career and they need a strategy and career road map to get there. I empower people with the right tools to make that happen.
