The games we play with ourselves
Are you your own worst critic? Your self-judgment creates your own self-doubt? How do you compromise yourself, and your needs, in every area of your life? Have you believed that you had to behave a certain way to get ahead in the corporate game? Women are more likely to compete & compare themselves with other women. Men have you found yourself doing this as well? Have you ever been sabotaged or back-stabbed by another person in your team or organisation?
Why does this happen?
These games are played because of a whole lot of mistrust and disrespect amongst people, which is a waste of energy for everyone. Energy we need to lead one another and support one another through unprecedented times in human history. We need to get the community back, the women's 'bathroom behaviour', where we actually see, and hear and hold one another. Otherwise we will not survive, never mind be fit for, the future. As the women who marched to the Union Buildings in South Africa in 1956 sang, when you strike a women, you hit a rock. It’s time to get that spirit back by becoming more self-aware, learning to trust & respect ourselves, and thereby build quality connections with one another.
80% of women report an increase in their workload both at work and at home since the onset of the pandemic. COVID-19 has presented additional challenges for various communities, including LGBT individuals and people of colour. Many now experience a diminished work-life balance. In hybrid workplaces, the pre-existing non-inclusive working conditions and discriminatory practices that have affected a wide range of individuals are exacerbated. The collective stress and limited coping strategies present a significant challenge for many, creating a critical situation. This is the real crisis.
