“We have to stop playing the game and start shifting our language.”
We’ve talked before about how to look at business through a feminine lens or a masculine lens.
In this week’s episode, we're talking about language. A lot of the language you hear in business is from more of the masculine framework - things like, "killing it", “hustle", "work hard - play hard", or "the grind.” So, the question is, do we need to change the language to be more authentic in the way we operate our businesses as women?
“Language does perpetuate culture. We can keep perpetuating culture that’s already in existence, or we can create a new culture.”
Language can either build up our culture or tear it down.
Sometimes, we underestimate the power of our language. We can either use it to be inclusive or exclusive. It ultimately determines the way that people perceive us, and can have a massive impact on the influence we have.
“We need to redefine what success and getting to our goals means.”
We also have an exciting announcement!
Next week, on our 50th episode, we’re going to be giving the Liberation Lab a whole new look and feel. The Liberation Lab is changing its name to Women in the Business Arena. We’re starting a FB group to continue our amazing discussions and we’re going to be offering some trainings and takeaways.
