9. Wipe out the weasel words

One of the biggest challenges my female leaders and clients face is that they allow their negative thoughts to control their lives. These thoughts lead to women using limp, non committal, apologetic words and language, which does little for a women's confidence in the business place. This online class shows you how to speak with more purpose and confidence.

8. The silencing of women

Language is arguably the most powerful tool we have, and it can be used as a force for good or it can completely undermine us. Since Greek times a major way of discriminating against women was to silence them. So we need to start owning and celebrating the voice of women. Even down to the pitch and tone. Even Margaret thatcher is known to have had voice training to lower her voice to add a tone of authority. This video talk about how women can start speaking up and trusting our own voice, and how successful women have done this.

2. Sexism is alive and kicking

1. Why women are in a lose-lose situation

If men make money or are powerful, they win. Women are somehow supposed to be above that yet women are left with all the responsibility of running a home and succeeding at work while having no real understanding of what success looks like. This video poses a new definition.
