Your Ambition Training, why?

There are two kinds of ambition: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic ambition entails the search for interesting and challenging work, which is relevant to society. Extrinsic ambition is striving for promotion opportunities, power, status and money.

Men and women have the same big intrinsic ambitions but men still have greater extrinsic ambitions. They want more responsibility, long for a higher salary and strive to lead more.

Women are less focused on one target. They aim for more goals and on different levels.; knowing what you want to become, want to do, want to achieve, want to be. Women versus men have an ‘integrated career anchor’. In view of those many different goals on many different levels, a tactic to take the necessary steps  is usually absent. Women are good at connecting with people but do those contacts provde a return? And when is the time to act, or to trust growth and let go?
