Is being told “you're killing it” really a good thing? Should women carry on being celebrated for over-functioning and working themselves into a state of overwhelm?
Success coach and business mentor Sarah Walton thinks not. In this episode of The Sigrun Show, Sarah and I talk about how it's up to women to do the internal work and recognise the value they’re putting out into the world. And, how this value should not be defined by how much they are doing, or who they are doing it for.
Sarah also talks about how women are the shock absorbers in society, when something goes wrong – they soak up the blow. She explains that in order for women to switch up this trajectory they need to start supporting each other by normalizing saying “no” more often.
We also discuss how the Myers Briggs test can help you determine if you're more likely to be the person to constantly people please. Here is a link to the test.
