How Women Can Get Promoted to VP

Updated: May 17, 2023

Climbing up the ladder is about working smarter, not harder.

In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie interview Jill Avey, a professional certified coach, about her work with women who want to reach higher in the corporate world while navigating gender bias. After conducting her research, Jill developed programs based on seven big themes that encompass women’s needs as well as common gender disparities she identified in the corporate setting. She explains how culture influences how female performance within their teams based on their upbringing and why males can interpret certain behaviors differently in a male-dominated field. Jill also breaks down the benefits of healthy conflict and networking for women’s influence, confidence, and assertiveness at work, areas that need to be developed to stand out and be considered by higher executives for a promotion.

Listen to this episode and learn tips to boost your corporate career as a woman!

About Jill Avey

Jill helps senior leaders develop so they can lead teams most effectively and grow to their full potential. She does this by supporting my clients to cultivate their strengths, empower their teams, and deliver better business outcomes as a result.

As a former executive, she has experienced the challenges leaders face firsthand. After 25 years, she left the corporate world to serve others and share her passion for leading that led to her success as a coaching manager.

After studying coaching at the International Coaching Institute, she earned her PCC certification with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). She is also certified in Conversational Intelligence, a discipline that uses neuroscience to improve team performance and to administer the Bates Communication ExPI Executive Presence 360 Assessment. She received her MBA from Columbia Business School with Dean’s List honors.

Jill believes that everyone has talents they haven’t yet fully realized. She is inspired to help her clients find deep fulfillment in their careers both personally and financially. She has been described by those who have worked with her as intuitive, curious, and authentic. As well, as a true thought partner who listens deeply to uncover what might not be readily apparent to expand her client’s thinking. Her approach is grounded in research, applied behavioral science, and her own personal experience.
