The Midlife Female Executive: Questions For Reflection & Growth


thoughtful-woman-senior-executiveMidlife is a time of reflection.

It is a time when we are compelled by our true selves to explore where we are in our lives at the present time and to listen to our inner voice of wisdom.

It is a normal developmental stage in all adults and it is a time when we deal with questions of purpose, meaning and of true desire – of how we want to lay the groundwork for our future.

For you, as a midlife woman and leader with many achievements, this can be a rich and magical time, with its own set of opportunities and challenges. It is a time to achieve clarity about your wants and needs, accept change, and to create momentum in the direction you wish your life to go during the next stage of your life.

The central question of midlife is about meaning. It is a time when we may choose very different measures to evaluate who we are and how we want to live our lives and contribute to our world.

The better the understanding we have about this time in adult development, the less likely we are to experience disruptions in our personal and professional lives.

One of the best ways to do this is to spend some time asking, and answering, some probing questions. I’ve created a self assessment you can use to deepen your awareness and understanding of your life now, and where your dreams may take you.
