When the time is appropriate, ask a woman you respect to take on the informal role of mentor - someone to whom you can turn when you have issues to discuss.

Make sure that partners and where relevant children fully understand your work and the issues facing you, especially in relation to maintaining the home/work balance.

Build up a range of networks - both inside and outside of work - and you will not only gain by meeting supportive colleagues from different environments, but you will also be able to widen your circle of contacts

Read widely - not just articles and websites relating to your immediate area of work but also informed journals and newspapers which will extend your knowledge of the environment outside your organization and may help you understand the impact of world events on your business.

Make sure you keep up to date with relevant training and development courses - they will broaden your skills and knowledge and increase your self-confidence.
