Becoming a mother is a huge role. For some women, it's what they look forward to most in life. But what happens if you wish to fulfill more in life during parenthood? Is being a mother the thing that's stopping you? In this episode, Ina Coveney talks about how she managed to 'scratch' the 'itch' as a parent, the flexibility of life as a corporate professional, why you're limiting beliefs are really just limiting lies, where her great confidence comes from and the two major things that you need to do to reach what you really want to be. You can be a mother AND accomplish your dreams.
Listen to how to start with your "visions" in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast with Ina Coveney!
The Corporate World and Women
Before experiencing it first hand, Ina didn't really pay much attention to gender biases at work. As a professional, it's in her character to take total ownership of what she puts out and the results she yields. If she's given feedback, she takes it and improves – constantly. Ina was always aware of her "quality" of work and never felt the need to worry about anything that could put her career at risk. But that quickly changed. When Ina got pregnant, two weeks before her maternity leave, she was assigned to a different role that dealt with implementation around the company. From what seemed like a general transition to a maternity leave, things became unbelievable for Ina from that point.
With no questions asked, she took the role and outperformed expectations. Before her maternity leave, she had already hired and trained a contractor to fill the previous role she transferred from, setting the company up for success. Thinking about the position, it was clear to Ina that the role demanded a larger scale of work than her original job. Clearly, it should've been a promotion with raise. Ina was prepared to discuss the promotion upon her return. When Ina's maternity leave concluded, she returned to work and was called by her boss. To her surprise, the promotion was no longer up. To make things worse, she was informed that the contractor she hired as a fill-up was performing well and would be keeping the role that was originally hers.
Find out how Ina handled discrimination and turned it around for the best, sparkling a fire for her to follow her REAL dreams and how YOU CAN DO IT TOO in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast!
