7 Superpowers of Women in the Workplace (Part 1) – Dr Shawn Andrews
As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I’m delighted to be joined by Dr Shawn Andrews, author of The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and the Gender Divide.
I came across her book a few years ago and it was gripping – loads of jaw-dropping data, relatable case-studies and practical advice about women in leadership roles. She has so much to say that we split the conversation into two parts!
In the first episode, Shawn explains the 5 main barriers for women in business which are nothing to do with their skills or competencies and everything to do with perceptions of women. We’ve seen this all to clearly recently with Jacinda Ardern.
We then turn our focus to the 7 superpowers that women bring to companies and these take us into the second episode where we also explore questions such as ‘why are some women more successful than others?’.
Shawn outlines examples and practical ways to develop these attributes if they are not your strengths (that goes for men too). And she outlines the benefits to men, both personally and professionally, of supporting women to climb the career ladder.
