In this fascinating episode with a wonderful leader, Jodie Salt, we explore the difference between women who are Assertive and women who are Bossy in the workplace.
Why does this happen and how can women be assertive at the same time as being kind, compassionate and feminine?
How can women step into confidence and maintain their roles well without suffering stress and especially during more difficult times and peri-menopause.
What happens when women have a lack of female role models in their industry?
Fight or flight mode can be triggered in women. When they feel backed into a corner, challenged or have lots of inner talk then the Alpha female emerges - but this is often a struggle and doesn't feel good.
Building the considersation and courage to communication can really help to soothe this element and help women to be really confident in themsleves.
Also the question of identity and some women can feel like they are lost themselves along the way...
How can women be vulnerable and open-minded and hold their viewpoint without feeling the 'battle'?
