Communication strategies for fearless women: How to stand your ground in tricky situations
As part of our effort to support women’s communities during the pandemic, half of the registration fee will be donated to one of our favourite charities, SOS Femmes in Geneva, http://www.sosfemmes.ch/
Professional women are often confronted with micro-aggressions, everyday sexism and stereotypes. Just telling ourselves that we need to toughen up and ignore behaviors like “mansplaining” or inappropriate jokes only helps to normalize and even encourage toxic behavior.
Women need to put their foot down here, because these challenging situations can be very disruptive for their success, their careers and their peace of mind.
But how can women defend themselves without being labeled as bossy and unlikeable?
In this workshop we will use the power of storytelling to enter an open discussion and explore the best practices of the participants. The objective is to walk away with a smart defense toolbox powered by collective intelligence. Bettina will add in her proven three-step fierce grace method of effective power scripting, controlling the situation with courage and confidence and learning how to speak-up for ourselves and for others, without turning the “bad guys” into enemies.
Bettina Palazzo has been researching, teaching and consulting in business ethics for over 25 years. She is especially interested in the gray zones of ethical decision-making and the psychological dynamics that lead to unethical behavior. For her, unethical organizations make people unhappy. The desire to create corporate cultures that make work fun and meaningful instead of dreadful and depressing drives everything she does.
When she is not helping companies to create an ethical culture or teaching at various Swiss universities, she enjoys reading Italian novels that play in Rome or scout the most interesting locations and events in Lausanne. www.bettinapalazzo.com
