Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office

Lois P. Frankel

Overview

Did you know that only 3.8% of CEOs at Fortune 500 companies are women? International Women's Day has been celebrated annually since 1911, and over the last hundred or so years, we've taken great steps forward in closing the gender gap. However, there's still a significant underrepresentation of female leaders in the workplace. And a year after graduating college, female professionals earn 8% less than their male counterparts. Why is this?

Psychotherapist Dr. Lois P. Frankel believes it's because of our ingrained societal conditioning that lurks deep under the surface. Young girls internalize harmful self-beliefs that slow – or even sabotage – their professional progress in adulthood. It's our everyday habits and behaviours, many of which we're not even aware of, that undermine our talents, enabling less-talented candidates to climb their way to the top.

Unconvinced? Just take a minute to think of the last time you've heard female colleagues, friends (or even yourself) preface points with "I might be wrong, but…", or, "I'm not sure if anyone else thinks this…". Many women sidestep fear offering their opinions up, particularly when they disagree with others, for fear of seeming 'bossy' or upsetting colleagues. But the truth is that the working world favors quick decision-making and assertiveness over compassion or 'playing nice'. The good news is that there are simple, concrete steps we can take to reverse these taught behaviors, and Frankel shows us how.
