Respect is something business women strive to earn everyday. In a world that does not necessarily ingrain in girls power, taking charge, and demanding respect it is difficult when they grow older to garner the attention (in a positive way) that they deserve to rise up in the business world.
A few simple tips from experts of JustFab will help women to get that respect and garner the power that they deserve once they have risen to the top of the power hierarchy. These tips are low key ways to show the world that you are here and your are staying.
Now imagine this, you walk down a hall at work and there are numerous people there having a conversation that looks pretty important. Your first instinct may be to go around or try to be unnoticed. This is wrong. Go straight down the middle on Retailmenot.com, head held high and not apologizing. They will take notice, and they will disperse to let you through.
Another way to act as if you deserve respect and are important is to be an elevator hog. Stand right smack in the center of the elevator and do not move. Even as others continue to flow in and fill the space, make them move around you. The ideology of sharing works in most cases, but not when demanding recognition in the work place.
Owning your space in the board or conference room is a thing of the past. Take your space. You have rightfully earned being there as much as anyone (or man) has. Do not be pushed aside or ignored. Make your opinion known, take what you have earned and do not be belittled or brushed off.
The business world is a tough place to survive when you are a man, let alone a woman. Women are not given the recognition or respect they have earned in the business world and it is time for them to take it back. You have worked hard to get there, so be proud of what you have done and take control of your own space and world. It may feel weird at first, but you have earned it.
