I've recently been passed over for a promotion in biz dev management because I haven't sold the software at this company - what should I do?
Hey Em - sorry to hear about it. What do you want? What is your ultimate goal? To get this promotion? Or to get into management? To increase your salary? To increase your responsibility? Clarifying what you wanted out of the promotion can help you identify other ways to get it (i.e. perhaps at another company, or perhaps in another few months). Most importantly, take this opportunity to ask your supervisor(s) for feedback. Why were you passed over? How can you show them otherwise? What is *their* vision for your future there? If their vision for you doesn't jive with your vision for your future, quietly start exploring other options - there's nothing wrong with that, and there's no reason you should need to disclose it. Does this answer your question? If not, write me back!

Thank you for the insightful office hours! What are the greatest pressures, frustrations, and/or anxieties of your work as a creative?
Hi Erin-Kaye - The greatest pressures in my work as a creative are working on high-end projects when the stakes are high. The heat is one when you're developing the best creative for the project, hoping that the client approves it, and that it delivers the kinds of results that the client expects. However, as a good creative brand strategist, that's what your job is all about. With this being said, developing the best creative is all about doing the homework, research, thinking outside the box and selling the idea that you're convinced will work, then having it all come together in post. Hope this helps.

I am interviewing with a chapter of the YWCA, who has just told me that they are "broadening the search". How can I show them I am the ONE?
That is a fabulous question. They may be broadening their search to satisfy the chain of command (C-suite/Board) that they have cast a wide search and found the best candidate. Are there questions you feel you left unanswered in your interviews? If so, take the lead now in enhancing your answers. Consider sending correspondence to your interviewers reiterating your interest in the role and highlighting the 3 strengths you bring to the position.

Given your background and experiences, how do you define leadership?
As I shared with Krystal Clark, My favorite definition is from Marshall Ganz at Harvard: Leadership is accepting responsibility for enabling others to achieve shared purpose, in the face of uncertainty. Read anything he has written. I also feel like an important part of leadership for women is aligning your passion and purpose with your career.

I've often found that (for myself included) what appears to be a tense work relationship actually has nothing to do with work. If she's professional, she may be choosing to avoid dragging her personal problems into work, but that doesn't mean we can always completely separate ourselves. Either way, you've given her the opportunity to talk, if she wants to, she will. Lunch is a great idea, or even just go grab some coffee from the local Starbucks. I would say that 8 out of 10 times I see this stuff going on, it has nothing to do with you, but something else going on in that person's life elsewhere.

I love what her mum told her and her definition of success including living a fabulous life (however we define that as individuals) which brings us happiness, time spent with friends and doing things we love.

For me it's numbers 6 and 7. I have my own business too and I only HOPE I'm spending my money on it as cost-effectively as possible, and restaurants- don't let me get started with how much I love food! :-)

I'd suggest to have lunch together so that you're both forced to talk to one another- in person- over a prolonged period of time. Ask her how she's finding work, what's going on in her personal life etc to see if she's stressed or worried about anything. If she doesn't spill, I'd then move on to the difficult conversation, starting with reminding her how much you enjoy working with and value her then move on to the situations that have been awkward- how they made you feel and why they are important to you (because you value your relationship with her). So you're coming from a place of not blaming her but of seeking understanding and showing empathy of how she may have felt or be feeling. Also a place of seeking negotiation of what things will be like going forward rather than to prove that you are right and she was wrong. Then finish the conversation by agreeing next steps, how to avoid it happening again and summarising what you've both agreed. Finally, follow up the conversation in an email thanking her for her time, to capture the next steps agreed and to set a review date so that you both can review progress at a later date. Difficult conversations are hard but necessary for us in developing our leadership skills and assertiveness. Best of luck!

This is so true- the demands of work make it difficult to have as much contact with friends. I try to meet up with mine every 6 weeks so that it's more realistic. Setting a date in the diary (and putting it in your work calendar too!) helps me make sure that I don't cancel and still gives me sufficient time to stay late when I need to. It also makes me remember how important friendship is if I place the same level of importance on our girly catch up as I give to my business meetings!

How do you frame a serious health setback that affected salary history when interviewing/negotiating for a position?
Hi, I think that your best strategy is to be honest and authentic. Think of the discussion as an opportunity to see if the firm and/or the hiring manager are compassionate. If you chose to share your medical history, be sure to let the interviewer know that you are healthy now and that your health is no longer an issue and will not affect your ability to perform well on the job. Good luck! Kim
