I hate it when people think they are giving me a compliment by saying I do something ‘just like a man’. I’m a woman, for heaven’s sake, I don’t need my actions validated by being told I do it like a man, i.e. better than if I was doing it like a woman…. Acting ‘like a girl’ was often used as a form of control when I was very young too, usually to stop me playing with the boys:
Jane, don’t do that, it’s not very ladylike’.
It’s a terrible message. Like calling girls ‘bossy’ but not boys (I like to counteract that one with:
“What leadership skills they are showing!’ You must be so proud.”
So I was thrilled when a past participant from a RenewYou course sent me this video to watch. Take a look and see what you think.

By the way, I’m working very hard to run my RenewYou licensing business ‘like a woman‘. Our aim is to work together and support each other. September is a busy month; I am running a trainers’ event in the Midlands and licensed trainers have courses happening across the country. Check the map to see where your nearest one is.
