April 16, 2021 – LightShift360 CEO and Founder, Gail M. Carter recently made a guest appearance on Australia’s Financial Executive Women’s Diversity Series where during the livestream interview, Gail fielded some questions about career transitions, seeking new opportunities, charting and navigating new paths in one’s life and career. She also touched on overcoming challenges that come with working in more technical industries with fewer women. The interview was conducted by Alex Tullio, CEO of FEW on the 8th of April, 2021.
Together with Alex Tullio, Gail M. Carter discussed the stereotypical expectations they both experienced as rising stars climbing the corporate ladder and how they chose very logical and structured ways of being, sometimes neglecting softer feminine intuition. Gail urged more employees and business owners to get in touch with their intuitive side. She said “I’ve learned that sometimes we can’t only make decisions with our head. So, I’ve learned to be in touch with my intuitive side. I’m starting to be more sensitive to things that people say and the many synchronicities that are happening. And I’m very conscious of things that are around me. So that allows me to sense and feel. I am a Christian and for big decisions in my life, I would either go to church or would pray. and I would ask God for the right direction for me.”
During the interview with Gail M. Carter targeted her answers towards corporate employees and budding entrepreneurs and people who, even though they may not know it, need inspiration to pursue their life goals.
Gail shared golden nuggets of wisdom relating to how to adapt when plans change in life. “One of the things that I’ve learned in life, is to take chances. When opportunities present themselves, just go with it, if possible.” ~ Gail M. Carter
“One thing I did learn about my upward trajectory through corporate America, a lot of times, you know, my opportunities came by just sharing with people what my gifts are, and not being afraid to do that.” ~ Gail M. Carter
“Be open, be aware and be present to opportunities. Opportunities are always around you if you choose to see them. Communicate, communicate, communicate the value that you bring, and the value that you have.” ~ Gail M. Carter
