Trying to get STEM business leaders to take gender equality seriously can be so frustrating! Can you relate?Hear me talk about the 5 things I wish they knew which would finally motivate them to take action:No-one in STEM has got gender equality right (yet). So trying something is better than doing nothing.Don't focus your efforts on recruiting more women if you can't even retain the women you've already got.Don't sit and wait for diverse CVs to roll in. Like anything that's rare and valuable, it takes extra time and effort to seek them out.You can't blame it all on the "pipeline issue". It's a known fact that women drop out of the tech industry at a faster rate than men. Do not lower the quality of new hires just to recruit a woman. But do look at how your assessment of quality may be biased against them.L E T ' S  C O N N E C T !> Instagram: @tiffanydawson_> LinkedIn: Tiffany Dawson> Website: www.tiffanydawson.co
The most under-used leadership skill? Trusting your intuition!While having experience and knowledge is useful, those who can tune into their gut feelings can make better decisions, quickly.If you think you're not experienced or knowledgable enough to be a great leader, think again!

Becoming a leader who's respected in a male dominated workplace has it's challenges. But if you know where to focus your efforts, you will be successful!The problem is, we find it hard to emulate our role models because they can seem so different to us. Most of our examples of strong leaders have really masculine traits. That works for men, but it can feel pretty icky pretending to be someone totally different to us.Here are the 4 things you need to focus on to become a well respected leader:Get clear on your career directionDevelop your OWN leadership styleLearn how to think strategicallyNail your influencing skillsL E T ' S  C O N N E C T !> Instagram: @tiffanydawson_> LinkedIn: Tiffany Dawson> Website: www.tiffanydawson.co
There's an influencing strategy that everyone seems to have forgotten about which I'm sharing in this episode!We usually think of influencing skills as saying the right thing at the right time. Or  wording our sentences to play mind tricks on the people we're trying to convince.But have you considered that none of that actually matters unless your heart is in the right place?Your intention matters. You can carry out the same activity, but if you're intention is to protect yourself (instead of serving others) you're going to get a very different result!L E T ' S  C O N N E C T !> Instagram: @tiffanydawson_> LinkedIn: Tiffany Dawson> Website: www.tiffanydawson.co
