Cath Waller.

Cath Waller, from Raymond Brown Construction Ltd., was the very first woman to sign up for the Agile Nation 2 Career Development Programme.

She joined the programme for a number of reasons; she wanted to increase her confidence levels and learn new skills which would lead her to become a better leader and manager.

Cath also hoped the programme would support her career development in the future.

We caught up with Cath to learn about what she has achieved so far...

— It has already had a positive effect as it gave me the courage to apply for a role within my organisation which I previously wouldn’t have had the belief to go for.

I began the course in November 2015, and in that time I have learned a lot about myself, my strengths and weaknesses and the type of manager that I am.

In a short time it has broken down many of the personal barriers that I had put up as reasons why I didn’t think I could do something and has begun to give me the belief that I can achieve the things that I want in the future.

It has already had a positive effect as it gave me the courage to apply for a role within my organisation which I previously wouldn’t have had the belief to go for.

Highly recommended!

— Being a mum and trying to have a career is hard and I spent a long time beating myself up, that I couldn’t do both effectively or that I didn’t have the skills to progress my career.

If there is one thing I now know it is that women have a fundamental role to play in the workplace and our transferable skills make us brilliant employees.

All you need is the confidence and belief.

This course has begun to give me that belief back and I would urge any woman in the workplace to take part in this course – the possibilities of where it will take you are endless.
