Inspiring Professional Women
Did you know, research & neuroscience shows that women:
- Worry more than men?
- Have brains with more connections between the left and right sides than men?
- Would rather talk up each other than promote themselves?
- Suffer from ‘the imposter syndrome’?
- Assume their hard work to be noticed & recognised?
True or false?
- Women give an inadequate account of their achievements, are more perfectionist and conscientious and expect hard work and achievement to be noticed and rewarded.

- Men and women are motivated by the same things at work.
Women have different values, think more holistically & more broadly, are attuned to social and environmental concerns & are more in tune with relationships thinking of themselves in relation to others. Men see themselves as independent and standing apart from others. Women more than men need meaning and purpose from their work
