Smashing Stereotypes: How To Confront 5 Common Biased Assumptions About Women at Work

Schedule a call to customize a speaking up / assertive communication workshop for your team: http://assertiveway.com/workshops  Are biased gender assumptions limiting your career? In this episode, we unravel the five prevailing biased assumptions that tend to hold back women in the workplace, particularly in male-dominated industries. When people make assumptions about you based on your gender, they make decisions on your behalf without even considering your perspective first. In this episode, we dive deep into empowering strategies that can aid in overcoming these biases, asserting leadership, seeking promotions, and managing criticism. Discover how to bust these 5 common assumptions about women: ❌“Women aren’t willing to relocate or increase travel due to family obligations.” ❌“Women lack the commitment to work due to familial responsibilities.” ❌“Women are content with their current position and don’t seek promotions.” ❌“Women are not assertive or confident enough to be leaders.” ❌“Women cannot handle criticism or tough feedback.” Gain invaluable insights on not just surviving, but thriving in the professional sphere, regardless of gender stereotypes.

Daily Habits To Reduce Speaking Anxiety (With Jackie De Crinis)

In this podcast episode, we discuss the daily habits that can reduce speaking anxiety with stress management coach, former executive, and host of the podcast "The OverThinker's Guide To Joy" Jackie de Crinis. We begin by discussing how anxiety can be created by speaking up or not speaking up, and the various negative emotions associated with consistently not expressing ourselves. We explore the initial hurdle of speaking up, which causes anxiety because of fear of the unknown. We then provide strategies to help people speak up, including assertive communication, which involves psychology and negotiation. We explain how empathy can help with assertiveness, and how building relationships with people can make it less likely for them to shoot you down. We also discuss the importance of stress management and foundational elements like hydration, eating properly, resting, meditation, and exercise to help reduce anxiety and how to implement those habits into our daily and professional lives. Finally, we talk about how being present and reading the other person can improve communication and how little things can make a big difference. You’ll discover: ✔️Why speaking up and not speaking up can both create stress ✔️4 essential steps to manage your stress and tips to get started   Jackie de Crinis Bio  Jackie de Crinis is a stress management coach who teaches people how to manage their stress so that they can be more productive in their careers and happier in their lives. Prior to becoming a life coach, Jackie spent 30 years in the television industry working as an executive for NBCUniversal, ABC, 20th Century Fox, and Sony television. During her tenure as a creative executive, she was credited with developing and overseeing dozens of Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning series. But in spite of her successful TV career, she often felt like she was running on adrenaline and surviving her life rather than enjoying it. This is what lead her to a lifestyle overhaul which included moving from LA to Maui and starting her second career as a life coach. Her intention is now to help other professional people learn how to manage their stress and avoid burnout. She, also, hosts the podcast "The OverThinker's Guide To Joy" for people who tend to OverThink, OverAnalyze, OverWorry, and OverEverything. Each week she provides tips, tricks and hacks on ways to reduce stress and manage our OverThinking brains. Jackie has three grown daughters, and lives on Maui with her husband and her dog. In her spare time, she plays tennis and pickleball, practices yoga and meditation, and loves board games.   Jackie de Crinis Contact Information: Website:          https://jackiedecrinis.com Podcast:          https://jackiedecrinis.com/podcast/ IG:                   https://www.instagram.com/jackiedecrinis/ FB:                  https://www.facebook.com/jackiedecrinislifecoach LinkedIn:        linkedin.com/in/jackie-de-crinis-7252211     Other Episodes You’ll Like: How To Cope With Stress At Work (Compilation): https://speakyourmindnow.libsyn.com/how-to-cope-with-stress-at-work-compilation Why Being Assertive Reduces Your Stress At Work: https://speakyourmindnow.libsyn.com/why-being-assertive-reduces-your-stress-at-work 6 Conflict Myths: Lies Teachers Like To Tell About Confrontation: https://speakyourmindnow.libsyn.com/029-6-conflict-myths-lies-teachers-like-to-tell-about-confrontation   Free Resources: Ask me your question for the next episode here: https://www.speakpipe.com/speakyourmindquestion Sign up for 10 Day free Assertive And Liked Challenge: https://assertiveway.aweb.page/beassertiveandliked Free resources: https://assertiveway.com/free/ Assertiveness free training: https://assertiveway.aweb.page/getahead Assertive Communication Newsletter: https://assertiveway.com/newsletter   Talk or Workshop on Speaking Up With Assertive Communication Podcast page: https://assertiveway.com/podcast-speak-your-mind-unapologetically/ Contact me [email protected] Or via Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ivna-curi-mba-67083b2/   About Assertive Way: Website: https://assertiveway.com Rate the podcast on apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/speak-your-mind-unapologetically-podcast/id1623647915     #SpeakUp #CommunicationSkills #AnxietyReduction #AssertiveCommunication #NegotiationSkills #Leadership #SelfCare #StressManagement #HealthyHabits #EffectiveCommunication #RelationshipBuilding #Empathy #Influence #MentalHealth #TimeManagement
