Liquid society - Women at work, speak up!

Are you one of those who take pride in your work and consistently deliver quality work on time? You put in long hours. Pay attention to detail. You’re a great team player and supporter. You’re fantastic in a crisis. Your boss depends on you as you pick up the pieces others dropped. In fact, you think your boss can’t live without you.You are a master fixer. The photocopier is out of paper. You load the paper. The format of the powerpoint slides have gone haywire. You reformat the slides.

Female factor - dropping the mask at work

Everyone is there except Dave - late again because he is sending his kids to school. Do you:A: Give Dave some flexibility and ask him to work later: orB: Tell him he has to stick to the rules or you will tell HR.You chose B because you had no choice when your kids were younger. They took the bus.STOP!At home you are a caring mother and you volunteer at an orphanage. Where did that compassion go?You tell yourself, you are doing your job. You, and Dave, have responsibilities.You are miserable.
