How to Build the Career of Your Dreams

From executive recruiting and coaching to advocating for women and minorities to gain leadership roles, Janice Ellig has spent her career helping others craft their own success. In this episode of Talent Champions, hosted by Diana Thomas, Janice shares the big decisions and daily actions that can help you pursue your professional dreams.

A few career building takeaways from this episode…

-Before making a career move, do your homework on the culture. Poor decisions are often the result of a failure to assess culture fit before taking on a new role.

-Invest in relationships. You will need support when you make a mistake or get off track, and those people you’ve helped in the past will be more than happy to stand up for you.

-Find your purpose, love what you do, and make sure you stay relevant even when life demands that your career goes on the back burner.

“More women are on big company boards, but the numbers are still shockingly low”

“It’s not about women vs. men. It’s about companies achieving a competitive advantage by reflecting their employees, their consumers, their communities and their shareholders and tapping into not 50% of the talent pool, but 100% to build the best boards and the best C-suites,” said Janice Ellig, a past president of the Women’s Forum and CEO of the Ellig Group, an executive search firm.

Why More Women are Needed in the Boardroom

On Nov. 7 about 650 executives will gather at Cipriani 42nd Street for the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions. The biennial event recognizes S&P 500/Fortune 1,000 companies with corporate boards that include at least 30% women. Recruiting executive Janice Ellig launched the breakfast in 2011, when she was head of the forum, as a way to encourage companies to include more women as board members. Back then the event honored firms with just 20% female directors, so there’s been progress. Ellig’s ultimate goal, though, is full gender parity in the boardroom.

BOOKS

Janice Ellig is the co-author of two highly regarded books:

What Every Successful Woman Knows

Acknowledged by Bloomberg Businessweek as “the best of its genre,” Janice’s first book offers 12 proven strategies for women who have set their sights on the executive suite. Derived, in part, from in-depth interviews with more than 200 successful senior corporate women, these strategies embody an array of critical dos and don’ts—from building a power base to avoiding becoming a generalist (multi-specialize instead)—and a range of key tactical behaviors, such as bonding with your boss, exuding authority, and seizing the significant and dumping the insignificant. Together these strategies constitute a coherent action plan for getting the power in an organization and wielding it effectively.

Driving the Career Highway

As the leader of Ellig Group, Janice has decades of experience working with people who failed to see the signs of trouble in their careers – or to read them right.

“For anyone whose career could use an overhaul – or even just a tune – up – Driving the Career Highway is a must-read. Loaded with fresh insights and practical, down-to-earth wisdom, it’s an indispensable guidebook for navigating the murky terrain of corporate success today.”
