Hey Divya!

We’re happy to help you communicate better.

Congrats!

You’ve improved this week!

Your Response Time

20% slower

Did you know this month you responded to male colleagues 20% slower than you did to female colleagues?

 

Gut check...

Increased response times can occur for a variety of legitimate reasons, like different kinds of work you collaborate on with men vs women. That said, here are some questions you can ask yourself:

– Is it possible that your being slower to respond could be creating delays in their workflow?

– Is it possible that your slower response time might make your female colleagues feel less included or prioritized?

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

Consider asking yourself “am I treating all messages the same?” the next time you are opting to place a message from a male colleague on the back burner.

 

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: I want to improve by trying to respond 5% quicker to men colleagues.

 

Your Chatter

30% of the talking

Did you know when speaking to men colleagues this month you only did 30% of the talking?
That means you sent 2.5x less 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...

When a conversation is wrapping up, check how much you’ve spoken. If you’ve spoken less, and feel you have more to contribute consider raising your hand and bringing up a topic you would like to discuss or input you have.

 

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

Equal

You’re using an equal amount of positive sentiment with both men and women. An excellent example for equal treatment. GOOD JOB!
Keep on doing what you’re doing.

 

 

Set goals to keep it up...

You’ve worked hard and achieving sentiment equality is something to be proud of! Congratulations!

Changed behavior requires consistency which is why we suggest setting a goal to guide your focus and maintain sentiment equality over time.

Goal: Maintain equal sentiment toward male and female colleagues for 2 consecutive weeks.
