Last month or so I read an article after an article suggesting that women are unsuccessful in business because they have no relevant communication skills. They are usually shy, afraid to talk for themselves and not ask what they need. This is because their career does not accelerate at the same rate as men.
Recently, Christine Jahnke's book, The Well-Speak Woman: Your Guide to Looking and Sounding Your Best continued the conversation.
But is this negative view of women's communication skills really accurate? I do not doubt the fact that women are less successful than men at the top of the business world, and partly because of communication difficulties. But as I thought, not long ago, in a previous post, people are more complex and life is much more subtle than the idea of dividing communication skills along gender lines.
This point was particularly felt last time when in the National Post: Three women shared the Nobel Peace Prize.
The three women:
-Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, 72-year-old Liberian leader (and Africa's first freestyle female head of state).
– Nine-year Leymah Gbowee, who "mobilized women on ethnic and religious lines to put an end to the Liberian war and secure their participation in the elections."
-Yean 32-year-old Tawakkol Karman, a journalist who participated in "the struggle for women's rights and Yemeni democracy and peace."
Everyone got the prize. Everyone worked against every chance to promote women's rights.
I've read these courageous women. Obviously speaking. They are clearly defined. And there is definitely no "glass ceiling" that will hold them back in their endeavors.
Obviously, and most importantly, these women told me at the same time that "I know," not "I can not."
And this is something that any of us can achieve, and even – or perhaps especially – if our work is far less distracting than it is for fundamental human rights. There are a number of good things that perform in any situation:
2nd First consider how you want to present your ideas and prepare yourself thoroughly.
3rd We recognize that your own behavior and thoughts influence you – but you "feel the fear" and do all this.
I can not really emphasize the need to put a lot of emphasis. When you think about how the new Nobel Peace Prize winners have come to where they are, one of the most important things to remember is how determined and focused they are for each of them.
Shows your way to the golden rule of communication: if you tell yourself you can talk, you will probably find that you know and you.
If, however, you are intimidated by Denise Graveline, the words of the well-known coach quoted in Eichler's article, that "studies after the study show … both men and women react negatively to women who speak in meetings, like men … [and] because men speak more at work, they are more likely to have the opportunity to promote themselves … "defeat yourself before you begin to approach the glass roof. And why do you want to do this?
