    Episode 150: Who Do You Think You Are?

    Episode 150: Who Do You Think You Are?

    A lot of women have a voice in their heads that asks them that question. In this episode we explore women's confidence, or the lack of it, and why it matters to our livelihoods. We discuss why women often struggle to recognize their value, and how much of our experience depends on our backgrounds. We meet Chicago business owner Denise Barreto, who is enviably confident, and NPR journalist Stacey Vanek Smith, who shares some of my hangups.

    Episode 149: Forgiveness at Work

    Episode 149: Forgiveness at Work

    In this episode we look at forgiveness as a career tactic. A lot of us stew for weeks or months over things that have happened at work. My guest Christie Lindor decided the way to get ahead in her career was to forgive the aggressions - micro and otherwise - she was subject to at the office. She talks about how and why she chose forgiveness as a way forward, and how focusing on what you want to come out of a bad situation can help you deal with hurt, anger and resentment. If you're fuming over a work situation right now, tune in. This is the last episode you'll hear for a while as The Broad Experience goes on hiatus for a few months.

    Episode 148: So Many Incompetent Leaders

    Episode 148: So Many Incompetent Leaders

    Most leaders in business and politics are male, and most of us rate our leaders poorly. Would that change if more leaders were women? In this show I meet up with Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, author of 'Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?' We discuss confidence versus competence, learning to distrust our instincts, and how bad leadership can drive a lot of us out of a job (voluntarily).

    Episode147: Forced Out (re-boot)

    Episode147: Forced Out (re-boot)

    Most of us have a bad breakup with work at some point. You don't have to be fired for things to end on a sour note, but however the end comes, leaving a job in difficult circumstances is one of the hardest experiences to go through. In this show we meet two women who know this first hand: Marion Kane, longtime food writer at some of Canada's top newspapers, and Heather McGregor, a frequent guest in this show's early years and now executive dean of the Edinburgh Business School. We hear their stories and get some advice on how to recover your confidence and your livelihood after a rocky exit. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Episode 146: Ageism, or Prejudice Against Our Future Selves

    Episode 146: Ageism, or Prejudice Against Our Future Selves

    This is the second of two shows on what happens as women in the workforce get older. And a lot of it isn't good. Women can experience a double whammy of prejudice that men don't, and it's affecting our bank accounts apart from anything else. In this episode we meet women's leadership professor Terri Boyer, and founder of Magnificent Midlife Rachel Lankester. Each discusses age discrimination (which is perpetrated by both men and women) and suggests ways we can tackle it, beginning with women not buying into the narratives we've been fed over the years. OK, centuries. And we meet late-in-life lawyer Kate Wiseman, who's having a positive experience of being an 'older woman' at the office.

    Episode145: Working through Menopause

    Episode145: Working through Menopause

    You're commuting to work and you start overheating; you're suddenly feeling more anxious about everything; you can't sleep properly, and your colleagues and family are driving you nuts. Many women in their forties start feeling these signs of peri-menopause. And in the UK, some employers are actually moving to support their female staff as they go through this transition. But menopause still remains largely under-discussed, particularly in the youth-obsessed US (why would you admit you're menopausal when the workplace is already sexist and ageist?) In this show we meet a menopause coach and an employee who are both determined to bring more transparency to one of the last workplace taboos.
