Women Should Start Talking and Keep Talking

Women should start talking and keep talking. There are many benefits of speaking aloud.

  • Giving sound to ideas can provide you with an objective view of your content.
  • Practicing and recording presenting your ideas with your mind voice and body in sync provide you with the ability to shape and reshape your ideas and words.
  • Having a private conversation with your smart phone is a great practice in also learning how to listen mindfully.

Equal expertise in speaking and listening skills are the yin/yang of successful communication. These are all major steps in empowering women to speak up, to become fluent and stay fluent in their area of expertise.

Well over a decade ago management guru Tom Peters wrote “there is little disagreement about what businesses must become: less hierarchal, more flexible and team oriented, faster and more fluid…. One group of people has an enormous advantage in realizing this necessary new vision: women.” Since that time there is sufficient data to suggest that Peter’s predictions are true — both in what businesses need to do and what women can do to help achieve a less hierarchal, more flexible and team-oriented business.

Women need to build their confidence and communication skills by talking shop with other women about the projects, ideas, and deals they’re working on while dramatically minimizing socializing and chatting about their personal lives. Women need to get stronger and more fluent by flexing their domain-expertise muscles. What better way than talking the walk with other women. There is too much value in mindful face-to-face contact.

To brings ideas to a broader gender table and to be game changers women need to speak up. Women need to start talking. Women need to keep talking.
