    Our cognitive bias as and about women

    Our cognitive bias as and about women

    It’s out to judge and compare others, to only look at the facts and figures and not the person behind them. We need to free ourselves from our cognitive bias and rely more on our EQ to create a more equal working world. Especially when it comes to gender equality. Both women and men still have a cognitive bias around which qualities are associated with which gender, and at its extreme, this leads to sexual harassment. In this BrainyHeart episode, I’m taking a look at our cognitive bias as and about women and what we need to do to change them.



    Tune in now to discover:

    - Sexual harassment and our values as women

    - Why linear thinking and getting stuck on comparison messes with our values

    - The importance of being aware of our cognitive bias

    - Why we associate leadership qualities with men

    - Redefining our values and strength as women

    - Embracing and leveraging the feminine brain

    - It’s time to put a stop to all types of harassment

    How to communicate your value

    We’ve made the big mistake of talking about our work successes in a non-emotional way. Yet talking about the outcome of something is only a small part of the whole story.

Whether you’re looking for a job, a current employee, or a leader, this BrainyHeart episode has tips for you on how to communicate your value better.



    Tune in now to discover:

    - Why you shouldn’t rely on your work to speak for itself

    - The danger in imitating others

    - The role of body language and tone

    - How to back up points with real-life examples

    - Why skillsets do not entitle you to anything

    Dr. Christian Gruenler on the need to do the right thing

    Dr. Christian Gruenler on the need to do the right thing

    There are around 10 million non-profit organizations in the world. Everything from one-(wo)man shops to multi-billion dollar organizations with 50 thousand employees and millions of donors. All focused on meaning well and doing good. But is there really a full harmony between heart and mind in this area? And is philanthropy and corporate social responsibility always what it intends to be? That’s what we dive into in this episode of BrainyHeart with Dr. Christian Gruenler, a political scientist and an expert in strategic management of non-profit organizations.



    Tune in now to discover:

    - How you measure success in the non-profit sector

    - The differences and similarities between baby boomers and millennials

    - The importance of balancing IQ and EQ

    - How the education system needs to change to fit what we really need

    - His advice to the next generation of talent

    - The need for flexibility in the future



    About Dr. Christian Gruenler



    Christian Gruenler is a political scientist and an expert in strategic management of non-profit organizations. He studied international politics and organizational development at the University of Konstanz (Germany) and earned a Ph.D. at the University for Humanistics in Utrecht (The Netherlands). The topic of his theses was the thorny issue of genetic enhancement of the human brain.



    Christian started his professional career in a large international re-insurance corporation. He then managed a family office for a few years – a function with a focus on asset management, which obliged Christian to observe world markets and their disturbing ups and downs.



    For the last 20+ years, he has been a manager and consultant for a large variety of non-profit organizations in several countries. During this long phase in his life, he was able to form a very clear picture of how civic society works. How values have become important drivers of politics and economic activities. But also, how meaning well does not always lead to effective philanthropic programs.
