Irish Examiner - County - - News -­workire­

The first of­fi­cial Net­work Ire­land West Cork event has taken place at the Celtic Ross Ho­tel in Ross­car­bery.

The self-aware­ness theme, ‘Deep­en­ing Your Per­sonal Im­pact’, was de­liv­ered by Sarah Ab­bott and Su­san Manning of The Peo­ple Prac­tice, li­censed prac­ti­tion­ers with more than 10 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ms Ab­bott said: “Build­ing self-aware­ness drives our abil­ity to per­form to our max­i­mum both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally.”

Self-as­sess­ment tools, she said, help peo­ple “gain greater in­sight on how the per­son­al­ity you were born with im­pacts how you in­ter­act with and in­flu­ence oth­ers”.

“In par­tic­u­lar, it helps you be­come more ap­pre­cia­tive and tol­er­ant of other styles of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and pat­terns of be­hav­iour which is in­valu­able in the busi­ness world.”

Mean­while, Ms Manning said: “It is vi­tal to be an adept in­flu­encer at a lead­er­ship level and some­thing that we find women can strug­gle with as their ca­reers progress and they take on more se­nior roles. Strong self-aware­ness, self-re­flec­tion and spend­ing time fo­cussing on your in­tended im­pact ver­sus how oth­ers felt they were im­pacted are key el­e­ments of self-de­vel­op­ment for all busi­ness peo­ple.”

Adri­enne Har­ring­ton, pres­i­dent of Net­work Ire­land West Cork, said: “We see time and time again that the most suc­cess­ful busi­ness peo­ple never stop learn­ing. The theme of greater self-aware­ness tied in well with our first of­fi­cial event as it’s all about build­ing strong foun­da­tions and re­silience es­pe­cially in sit­u­a­tions where we need to in­flu­ence oth­ers, both in our per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lives, to reach a com­mon goal.”

The West Cork group is en­cour­ag­ing businesswomen to join the or­gan­i­sa­tion and is of­fer­ing a dis­counted mem­ber­ship fee of €125, by cit­ing the code WC25 dur­ing reg­is­tra­tion, un­til Fri­day next
