Research indicates that women have been socialized from an early age to be modest about their accomplishments, to the extent that “Inside Amy Schumer” did a devastating skit about a group of women who couldn’t take a compliment without diminishing themselves.
Women in the workforce typically believe that if they just work hard and produce great results, they will be justly recognized and rewarded---too often they are taken for granted instead. This session uses results of studies (from Yale, Harvard, SHRM, etc.) and stories to highlight the unintentional biases---demonstrated by others about women and women about themselves—that hold women back. But awareness alone is never enough. We will cover five pragmatic, behavioral strategies that anyone can implement to ensure their accomplishments have the impact and receive the recognition that they merit. You will learn:
1) How to stop limiting yourself--not letting insecurity, the need to be perfect, or fear of failure hold you back.
2) How to balance being respected and being liked.
3) How to get yourself heard and your impact recorded.
Attendees will be paired or small group discussions to identify immediate application for strategies covered. We will examine results of high- or low-power poses on subsequent performance. We will then create an Impact Report and compare it to normal results reporting.
