When I was working at BAE recently I heard about another women's network where they run VIP lunches. These are opportunities for women at all levels in the company to get together with senior management in an informal setting. Its a great way of increasing your visibility and getting the low down on what is really happening and finding out what life is like at the top.
I thought that this was a great idea and filed it away for future reflection. There are not many opportunities to do this and when they are offered you should grab them with both hands. So when I got an email offering a VIP lunch date with Theresa May, Shadow Minister for Women I phoned and booked it with no second thought.
Now if I hadn't already been exposed to the idea of VIP lunches I might not have responded so quickly. This is because having been exposed to the idea it has created a pathway in my brain which then works much faster the next time I am exposed tot the same idea.
Pathways in your brain are created by what you are noticing and paying attention to every minute of every day. What are you noticing and paying attention to today?
