Podcast 51: Companies By Women Outperform Those of Men

Why we NEED women back in the Workforce for America’s Success

I am sharing a special REPORT of how we need women back in the workforce, if we want the US to get back to the #1 Economic power in the world.

Hear the evidence of the difference that women are making in the world as leaders.  And how you as a women can find your strengths to show your value to get back into the work force because we need you right now.

I am going to ask you a Question: Do you know why more than ½ of the 20 million who left the workforce during covid are women?

It doesn’t take me too long to figure it out.  If you are a woman in the work place, how have you been treated during the worse pandemic of our time?  Do you have childcare to go back to work or juggling it all, during the worst pandemic in our lifetime?

Thank and appreciated the sacrifices the women in your life have made, especially during covid being the medical worker and cashier the front line of covid defense. They are making your life better.  

When you get really hurt. Who do you call out for ….Mommy! Who do you run to? It not a corporation or the government.

We are still in a global economic and health crisis and we need women back to make it all better, because the data I am going to share with you shows why.

According to the 2020 Women in the Workplace study, co-authored by McKinsey and, 1 in 4 women are now considering leaving the workplace or downshifting their careers.

As Many as two million women could leave corporate America.

Stressors  are showing a massive increase in caregiving responsibilities at home and at work may jeopardize women’s ability to stay in the workforce and progress. According to the survey, 40% of mothers (compared to 27% of fathers) have added 3 or more additional hours of caregiving a DAY to their schedule. That is 15 or more hours a week, the equivalent of a considerable part-time job or one of the most stress jobs there is.

We need more women back into jobs, as our superpower for our own interests in global policies and to curb this global economic crisis.

This affects everyone male and female if we don’t get this right, and support the care economy that is being proposed by the current administration and I want to share why this and other legislations that is critical and why you should care and expect more from our government to improve our lives, because Corp America is TOOoo slow to do it.

And most important for all of our futures is for women to show value in the workplace as they come back to work.  You cannot shy away. Stand up for all that you do and your right to have better pay and standards that include taking care of your family AND work.

This goes so much deeper than I realized as I wrestling with my own success as a stretch myself

I asked to find and now have a mentor to help me get where I want to go as a successful woman beyond what I have done with counseling. Raven Glover, The Talk Show Maven, and her own media Agency network and agency Raven to promote me.  She has been awarded by President Obama the Life Time Achievement Award and been on the cover of Founder Magazine.  I am going for it, as we all need help to get to new goals, to offer what I do best. 

I want women in the workplace to expect more. 

I want to inspire women today who are feeling defeated.

I believe we have a social fabric issue in the US. Our values and where we put our resources which shows our value, needs to change.  Families are where our values need to be focused. That is where I see women are putting their time and energy and why they may be leaving corporate America.

Many Women are making an impact on the world of Finance.

Some of the most successful political leaders in the world right now, are women.

In the business world several studies have shown that companies run by women, though still in the minority usually outperform those led by men. Studies have found that firms with a higher proportion of women in the top roles generated better returns on shareholders equity and had stronger balance sheets.

And women have been brought to rescue companies in trouble like General Motors handed Mary Barra the keys and Jan Frazier recently became chief executive of Citicorp.

In a Harvard study: woman scored higher than men on traits such as motivating, communicating and fostering teamwork. Female bosses did even better on tough attributes like decision making and initiative taking.  The same reason some experts say is that men tend to view their careers, vertically as single-minded climbs to the top. Women by contrast, take a broader horizontal approach, building the relationship outside the office and taking career detours into unrelated fields. In fact, those sidestep trips tend to help women become nimble, and creative decision makers.

Overall, there are women running finance ministries in 16 countries, and 14 of the world central banks.

A study by the American Psychological Association showed that US states with female governors had fewer COVID-19 deaths than those led by men. And this

A new Harvard review study reported that woman got significantly better rater ratings in 360 degree assessments of 60,000 leaders, between March and June 2020 Women account for less than 2% of the CEOs of financial institutions and less than 20% of executive board members, but the institution's they do run show greater financial resiliency and stability.

My opinion of why women are more effective, is because of the same use as the great geniuses of the world like Da Vinci or Michelangelo, who were able to use both hemispheres of their brains, the creative, emotional and the logical right brain.  Women have been shown to be able to multitask or have information transferred between the right and left hemisphere fluidly. 

So I hope you take this information to heart and can see its importance of supporting the women in your life, seeing that they have value in everything that they are doing for your family, and appreciate it, and we see them for what they have done to get your family or us through this pandemic, And let's see what they can do beyond that.  Support your women today.

Podcast 50: Mindfulness Practice in Alcohol recovery

Creating a daily practice of Mindfulness Mediation easily

Podcast (Audio Only)

Today’s podcast is special.  It is my 50th Podcast that I want to combine some of the components of other podcasts that can truly change your life, if you choose to implement some new practices.

This podcast is for those who want to achieve a new perspective, to create a new Practice in moments of time to start to understanding how to control your mind, our thoughts and our emotions.

We will include a Vagus nerve breathing technique that will automatically calm you or can use to calm a panic attack, and a mindfulness mediation to pull it all together.

As Americans, we seem to accept that stress is a necessary part of life.  But, it doesn’t need to or need to affect your health, if we can open up to ways of other cultures to draw from them to improve our way of life .

We can keep the busy lifestyles but add mindfulness as we do it.  

We can have it both ways with improved health and vitality.  The summary of today is:

  1. The fundamentals and foundations of mindfulness, the attitudes of mindfulness practice, and the history of mindfulness and how it emerged as a powerful force in our modern health care.
  2. 6 Specific techniques for practicing mindfulness in all hectic life activities, including breathing, walking, eating, exercising, listening, and dancing.
  3. And exercises and strategies for integrating mindfulness practice across the spectrum explored, especially with conditions like anxiety, trauma-related disorders, depression, and unresolved grief.

In this podcast listeners can participate and learn the basics of mindfulness and meditation, consider its applications for enhancing quality of life.

Mindfulness is an ancient meditation the practice of paying attention to your present moment experience, whether it be a sight, a sound, a taste, a smell, a sensation in the body, or mental activity includes both emotions and thoughts noticing life, absent of judgment, that can be practiced for a few moments or for a few minutes sitting in a doctor's office or on a park bench, standing in line or in a practice you can develop sitting for 15 minutes each day.

THICH NAHT HANH is a Zen Buddhist author of THE MIRACLE OF MINDFULNESS, 92 yo teacher, and often referred to as the father of mindfulness in the West, he states: “Mindfulness is the miracle by which we masters restore ourselves”.

In Western medical practice, mindfulness is described as a psychologic state, a practice of mindfulness meditation, and a mode of awareness.

Other authors who focused on mindfulness: Ram Dass: Be Here Now teaching of "be here now" 

In Jon Kabot-Zinn's seminal work Wherever You Go, There You Are, he defines mindfulness as "paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the presence of the moment, and non-judgmentally" as if your life depended on it." 

There are SEVEN ATTITUDES OF MINDFULNESS- a Frameable copy of the seven Attitude of Mindfulness as a gift or Podcast 49.

So lets put this all together in a meditation using these mindfulness skills.

In podcast # 45 I explained Vagus Breathing as miracle way to stimulate the Vagus nerve in a 4 and 8 breathing that sends a calming chemical into your system for panic attacks or general calming.

Create a space in your life for mindfulness practice.  I suggest 15 min. find a place in your environment where you can create nice ambience, have a candle or a jewel or something special that make you love being there. Have your comfortable chair, that when you sit in it is makes you feel special.  Once you establish this space it will draw you into a faster state of peace, just by being there. 

Remember to Practice the Skills shared today to actually live the new outcome for the benefits you will recieve.

This is by no means a replacement for therapy of any medical attention if you need it.  Always reach out and take care of yourself or if you are feeling like you want to hurt yourself, there is always someone standing by at 1800-273-8255 or call 911.
