Three female chefs working in a food truck

Commanding versus demanding respect.

Maybe every one of us experiences this at some point in our careers: being seen as less than, simply by virtue of being a female leader in a male-dominated environment.

Sometimes others carry out actions that do real harm to our self-esteem.

Even their small actions can chip away at our sense of self – ignoring our authority, dismissing our suggestions, not taking our instructions seriously.

And we add to that harm through feeling shame or guilt about our work and our leadership.

Which, needless to say, upsets our internal wellbeing.

But you know this truth: that you can only ever command respect, and never demand it.

How does that work in a situation where you are not given that respect in the first place?

Join me for my webinar on Monday where I continue this discussion. This training is for female leaders and aspiring leaders in Hospitality, BOH or FOH.

Book your spot before the deadline tomorrow.

And please share with female friends or colleagues who will be interested in attending!
