    As for the business world, my firsthand view is that departments where women are a majority male leaders can become clueless, manipulated or the opposite bullying oppressors... Meanwhile with a female leader there is less drama, far less manipulation and "cloak & dagger"... As for me now I have same benefits as female counterparts where before felt shorthanded... Also feel more protected as in sales / personal situations I usually ended in the losing side.

    @Ruth Sinkeler women are leaders. Who holds the family together? Who inspire peace? Who create life? Who is healing thoughts men's souls? So called modern society still think that power is leadership, and it is out of question that they would share equity with their opposite sex.

I wish more people got that :) Striving for equality means to me that we are equal while we keep our unique qualities as women and men. Many women still think that to be a good leader they need to copy the male style of leadership. It does not work!

    I completely agree @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador! And this is why I choose the smaller, more inconsequential annoyances to practice these concepts. The emotional charge isn't there, so it's far easier to accomplish. And that way, when the more impactful and trying adversity comes my way, I have practiced this enough that I can make headway. But there is no question that letting go of the little things is so important! #6

    I found early in life that shared rules lead to emotional outbreaks of defiance shared visions though always wound up with support, in most cases. I got a great laugh out of the TP metaphor. How can a roll of wood fibers be the center of such great discussion across so many households? My kids would always let me know they left me one square so the roll was truly not empty. We laughed. The roll exits from the front not the back or my wife says the back not the front.

    On a more serious note we did move from rules to vision and over time our children and our professional associates at work moved towards the vision. They didn't always do it "my" way but they did work towards the vision.

    In adolescence, my sons used to take carefully laundered and folded clothes (that I stacked on their beds for them to put away), and throw them on the floor, which I subsequently collected and washed again. Once I realized they were doing this, I told them to wash their own clothes.

    I love the TP example you used @Jennifer Heflin. That was an on-going issue in my home too when my kids were growing up. I laughed when I read found it on the floor, or the sill of your window, I remember those days. I think sometimes it's the cumulative effect of TP, not rinsing toothpaste down, leaving dishes on counters or in every room, clothing on floors and on the list goes. So, we do need to choose our battles and re-focus as you put it. I did learn to do this over time and it made life much easier on me and probably my family too. My kids are now grown and do quite well taking care of their own homes ;-) For the record, as smart as my husband is, he still leaves a new roll of toilet paper on the floor. I think he's TP challenged.

    Very interesting examples :) Interestingly, i have seen that every household in the world has some such TP-type tussle. Somewhere its over the bath towels, other places over pillows, while somewhere something else. Yet in every situation there are two things in common - majority just not bothered and yet 1 guy insisting endlessly. And still everyone living together. Possibly that's why its called a family. Nice write-up @Jennifer Heflin Hope TP comes home in your home soon. :) Good wishes.

I have loved Bessie Smith's music for years and had long ago heard the rumor that she had bled to death when a white hospital wouldn't admit her because she was black. Happily, while researching for this post, I learned that this was not true. So, although she died too young, it was from the accident.

    I can see from the initial construct that you have put a lot into this and so I am sure this will prove for me to be a feast of learning and your choice of topic is original and not an individual I have studied before. I call that caring, which to me is a greater personal principle than the social principle which we are all accustomed to that is now called sharing.

    Have you ever wondered if it would be weird to message me about Rodan+Fields?

    Maybe we don't know each other well... maybe we haven't talked since high school... or maybe we've never even met before... that's okay!!!

    There's nothing weird about wanting to learn more about these amazing products or the life-changing business opportunity!

    I love that I've been able to reconnect with people I've lost touch with and make new connections with people I maybe would've never crossed paths with before Rodan+Fields!

    There's real value in these products and the business! It's definitely NOT WEIRD for me... don't make it weird for yourself 😊 I can't wait to chat with you!!

    How true @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. BTW, I never thought of myself as a techie, but I studied coding in HS back in the sixties, got pushed into computer classes in the seventies as part of an urban planning degree, and wound up being the office computer network coordinator in the eighties along with my "real" job as interfaith dialogue director. Now I'm my own webmaster, for better or worse, and have taught technical writing at a college of engineering & computer science. The moral of my story - More women are using STEM skills than realize it - but they should! #10

    @Deborah Levine and @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador - how I wish more women would get into this field. During my insurance career, there were very few women in STEM. However, I worked with a couple of women pursuing technology as their profession and they were very successful. This was a few years ago when it was difficult for women to find employment in STEM.

    IMO, you can't go wrong because pursuing these professions opens a world of opportunity.

    #1 True Harvey and insightful analysis. Perhaps she didn't give much weight to the corporate section due to audience design & the theme of that particular TEDx. I'm finding part of what you said a little ambiguous. She paid her dues; she took the bucks and learned at the corporation's expense...strategy...execution, awesome. Not sure whether to agree or disagree! Without wishing to state the obvious, we're all remunerated while working for employers, unless it's an unpaid internship. In order for us to do the job we've been appointed to do, the investment is time, training & requisite learning.

    Although I didn't climb the corporate ladder, before I left to start my own business, I developed systems & processes that were still being used a decade later - they more than got their money's worth in terms of savings & streamlined processes & while they paid my salary (a 1.0 Full Time Equivalent for a job that was, in reality closer to a 1.5FTE), I paid with my health & mental wellbeing. Although we see the world not as it is, but as we are, it's unfair of us to 'judge' based on what we don't know about someone's journey.

    The power of language and positive self-talk helps create the mindset required for success. Teenagers and children have dreams and the more they listen to naysayers who say "You can't do that!" or get sucked into other people's fears, then they're less likely to aim high. I hear what you're saying about the path to enlightenment, that's a lifelong journey for those who choose to walk it. But for now, let teenagers believe they can. To paraphrase Henry Ford, "if you think you can or you can't, either way you're right." But on a more pragmatic level teenagers don't have full autonomy to disobey rules while in the family home, so, perhaps playing with this approach is best deferred until they leave home!
    Harvey Lloyd
    09/05/2017 #1 Harvey Lloyd
    I found the "Talk" entertaining even though her entire brand is build around the humor of an expletive.

    I will have to say though that the part she breezed over, corporate ladder climb and eventual exit from that environment is key to her success.

    She paid her dues at a corporation's expense. She took the bucks from an entity overtime while she learned, gained wisdom then executed a plan over time of self employment. Awesome.

    Her talk though would have you believe that you could self talk your way into this situation. Teanagers do this within the family everyday and i don't think that teenagers represent the path to enlightenment either.

    She didn't climb the corporate ladder and gain wisdom alone. Someone invested their ???? bucks in her.

    #9 When we extended the home into the garden we used up whatever room there was for permissions. We built a two story extension where the back of the house is at three levels. The family went with a sloping roof because they were concerned about snow accumulation but I wanted a flat roof with a glass house extension to the third level of the home. What is done is done now - but that is where the possibility was - even the she-sheds you have shown are in effect glasshouses. We will also remain where we are because it such a perfect location for everyone - but I can add this to my future dream home when that long awaited day arrives.
