Your Gut…Your Friend or Foe?
Gender Integration, all about understanding how to manage and self-regulate biases and stereotypes. My work is to help identify what I call internal control zones that help individuals “see” and “feel” their present state and how gender bias is affecting their day to day success. Our work promotes reframing those perceptions.
One “tool” I use in my work is to ask how close do people listen to the signals the gut sends to them- what is it telling them?
For me every time I have pushed my gut aside or just ignored its “signals” the outcome has turned into a truly leaning experience, another phrase I use for failure, disappointment or regret.
