Women's Empowerment School Podcast by Sylvia Becker-hill On How You Can E.. - 2w ago

We have created a working culture where there is only space for Superwomen. So, we adopt an attitude of whatever-it-takes, leveraging the patriarchal strategies of dominance to reach our goals. And in the short-term, this approach is effective at getting results. But in the long-term, it kills the joy we have for our work, it kills the connections between us, our creativity and vitality—and in some cases, it even kills us.

Today, Sylvia challenges us to explore how the patriarchy influences the strategies we use to pursue our goals. She explains how we have assumed the guise of Superwomen to cope with a corporate culture designed for men by men, adopting dominance, hustling and efforting to get things done—at the expense of our health and wellbeing.

Sylvia also weighs in on the research around the arousal threshold, describing how men and women differ in terms of motivation and why leaders need to adapt their communication style accordingly. Listen in for insight on reframing vulnerability and authenticity as the strengths that they are and learn how we can drop our capes and bring our whole selves to work!

Topics Covered

How the patriarchy influences the strategies we use to pursue goals

How Superwomen cope with working in a culture designed for men

How suffering from Superwoman Syndrome impacts our health

The strategies of dominance, hustle + efforting to get things done

Why patriarchal strategies work short-term but aren’t sustainable

Women's Empowerment School Podcast by Sylvia Becker-hill On The Power Of .. - 1M ago

Memory is a fickle thing. You may be confident that your memory of an event is absolutely correct, yet someone else may remember the details very differently—and be just as confident that they’re right. Most of us understand that remembering is subjective, but you may be surprised to learn that your biased memory influences the reality you create! When you project your memory of a person or situation (and added judgement) on current circumstances, people respond by living up to your expectations. How does this work? Can you use this creative power to script a different outcome?

Today on Women’s Empowerment School, Sylvia is sharing the seventh chapter of her book, 12 Leadership Powers for Successful Women, ‘The Power of Projection.’ She explains why there is no such thing as an objectively stored memory, discussing the fluid nature of memory and how it changes over time.

Sylvia introduces the idea of remembering as a creative act, offering insight around how your judgement of a client or colleague based on previous experience impacts your behavior toward them—and proves your projection right when they mirror your body language! Listen in to understand the power you possess to co-create your world and learn how to script encounters so that people live up to your ideal vision.

Topics Covered

Why there is no such thing as an objectively stored memory

The fluid nature of memory and how it changes over time

Sylvia’s insight around how remembering is a creative act

How projections turn into expectations + impact our behavior

How mirror neurons make us feel connected via mimicry

Why people always live up to our expectations of them

How to script encounters so people embody our ideal vision

Taking ownership of everything we think, feel + experience

For the last 7,000 years, power has been reserved for men. And though cultural norms are changing, many women continue to resist power, viewing it as an ugly or destructive force. How can we better understand our personal power paradigm? How can we step into our power without allowing it to corrupt our character? How can we learn to embrace power and feel safe doing so?

Today, Sylvia is helping us explore our personal power paradigm. She explains how a paradigm is influenced both by culture as well as our past experiences, walking us through a series of questions to explore how we perceived power as children and fully understand our initial positive or negative feelings toward it.

Sylvia then guides us through an assessment of how we experience power now, challenging us to compare our current understanding of power with that of early childhood. She addresses why many women continue to resist power and shares a practical exercise for feeling safe as we step into our power. Listen in for the neuroscientific research around power and empathy and learn how we can grow in our power—without losing compassion for others!

Topics Covered

How a paradigm is influenced by culture + past experiences

The definition of power as the ability to produce an effect

How to uncover your personal power paradigm

  • How did you perceive power as a child?
  • Of the adults in your family, who had more power?
  • How did you discern who had more power?
  • How did power look? How did it sound?
  • Did power have a positive or negative connotation?

Assessing how you experience power NOW

  • How is power distributed at work?
  • How do you sense power inside yourself?
  • How do you behave when you feel powerful? Powerless?
  • Does power have a positive or negative connotation?

The neuroscientific research around power and empathy

Why women need to feel safe stepping into our power

How to counterbalance the negative effects of gaining power

  1. Stay grounded
