Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, Today, 2:07 AM

Strong words:

 

"You can have it all, despite what you're reading in all the magazines that you can't," Cairns told me as I interviewed her for CNN's Leading Women series. 

She's just one of many high-profile women attending WEF this year, and rejects the notion that working mothers can't have successful careers.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, Today, 2:09 AM

"The focus takes in everything from fighting terror to addressing the growing income divide. But this year just 17% of participants at this invitation-only summit are female; an increase on 15% in 2014, but still far too small a number. 

Meanwhile, on the Fortune 500 list, just 3.4% of corporations have female CEOs. Clearly, there is work to do..."

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, January 29, 7:37 AM

I find strength in knowing that I am not alone here. I am the type of person who shakes it off, steps it up, and lives and breathes by the mantras..."What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and Failure is not an option."

 

While I still live this way, I have learned how to manage what I believe people refer to as the"Superwoman Syndrome".  My take on this is that women like me don't believe they are superwoman; however, they hold themselves accountable for doing things perfectly 24/7 while juggling relationships, tasks, schedules, kids,...the world as though they had superhuman powers.

 

After reading the article, do any of the below apply to you?

You have to do things perfectly

You are impatient and always have a sense of urgency

Run on 5th gear all of the time

Rarely take time to re-charge yoru batteries

Are up early and go to bed after everyone else to get things done

Can't relax until you finish what you have to do

Feel like you should be able to accomplish more in a day

(If you are a mom, the list doubles:)

 

If you answered yes to any of the above you proably have the Superwoman Syndrome.  Here are 3 things you can do to live with it.

 

1.  Don't think you have to do it all yourself.  Tap into the resources that are available to you.  The most confident women ask for help and know it is not about them it is about the goal.  They put their egos on the bench and get the right resources required to get to the finish line on time.

 

2.  Pay attention to your self talk - find out what you are saying to yourself  (Awareness is the beginning of all change)

 

3.  Start talking kinder to yourself today:  Instead of talking negatively to yourself, with thougths like:  What were you thinking/How could you make that mistake/this is not good enough/You should have thought of that/This is not good enough, etc.

 

Change the words and thoughts to boost yourself:  You have worked hard on this and made great progress, what could we do the next time to be even better?  That was a great meeting, you added value and were well prepared -- great job (is there anything that I learned that I could do the next time to add even more value?

 

The point is to do better until I know better, and when I know better I will do better.

My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and achieve your goals!
