How (And Why) To Make Measured Moves

By now we are familiar with the ‘Great Resignation’ as thousands of people embark on a COVID-induced career rethink.  Gallup reported late last year that nearly half of U.S. workers are watching or hunting for job opportunities, while 35% of all U.S. workers have changed careers in the past three years.

The biggest change I’ve seen in 16 years – and what still needs need to change

When I started out in my career in oil and gas I was the only female on my team.  There were NO female leaders or managers and barely any female colleagues across the whole organization and very few in the industry itself. In the 11 years I was with my first employer, I never reported to a woman. As I look back on my 16 years since setting up 2Hill Consulting, I can see there has been some… slow… progress. [...]

I stepped out on faith — you can too

Where does change happen? It feels like change is all around us, an external force buffeting us around like a leaf on the wind.  Real change, however, is internal. It happens within us and we have the power to control it, even when it feels like we control nothing else. Often, significant change starts with an inkling that we can do ‘more’ in our roles and responsibilities.  It’s OK to admit you want more out of  your career, your role, [...]

What’s stopping you from achieving your goals?

Why do we fail? There’s research to say only 8% of people who set New Year’s goals actually achieve them. A recent online program I completed started off by telling students that only 30% of participants would complete the studies. A PwC study of over 10,640 projects found that only a very small proportion of companies – 2.5% – completed 100% of their projects successfully.  […]

Diversity Is Not Enough – Here’s 4 Ways To Do More

The civil rights movement was born in the 1950s. Black History Month was proposed in 1969 and first marked a year later. It is 2022 and we are still having the same conversations.  We must move DEI further this year. We must expand our understanding and empathy because dismantling structures and systems has taken, and is taking, decades… and it will definitely take more than a month.  […]
