Your Chatter

25% of the talking

Did you know when speaking to men colleagues this month you only did 25% of the talking?
That means you sent 1/3 of the words they sent you.
There may be room for you to speak up.

 

Gut check...

Speaking less can occur for a variety of legitimate reasons, like different kinds of work you collaborate on with men vs women.  Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

– Is it possible that your speaking for less of the conversation could mean colleagues are missing out on relevant details?

– Is it possible that your speaking for less of the conversation could mean colleagues are missing out on your valuable opinion and input?

If this is something you'd like to work on...

Women tend to overestimate how much they have spoken due to historic societal pressures. So when you think you’ve spoken about the same amount as your partner, think about what other relevant details you can provide.

 

Set goals to see improvements...

Did you know that people who set goals (even small ones like these) are more likely to improve because goals help trigger new behaviors and guide focus?

Goal: To weigh in by raising your hand more.

 

Your Sentiment

20% more

Did you know when speaking with men your sentiment is 20% higher than when you speak with women?

 

 

Gut check...

Being supportive with your women colleagues is important.  Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

– Is it possible that lower sentiment toward women could negatively impact their experience at work?

– Is it possible that lower sentiment toward women could negatively impact your team’s productivity?

If this is something you'd like to work on...

You’re busy and sometimes niceties feel too time consuming. We get that!

Thankfully there are some quick and easy ways to accomplish positive sentiment. When in a conversation with others take note of how friendly your engagements are. Even something as simple as taking the time to ask how they are can set the tone for the conversation. If you have a difference of opinion it is helpful to quickly thank others for their thoughts and then engage in sharing yours.

 

Set goals to see improvements...

Did you know that people who set goals (even small ones like these) are more likely to improve because goals help trigger new behaviors and guide focus?

Goal: To increase sentiment toward women by 5%.
