Show Notes

Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to land dream opportunities in their careers and get that recognition they so deserve.

In this episode, ''Is Asking For Permission Diminishing Your Power?'  I am sharing all sorts of language that you could be using that is holding you in a submissive state and damaging your authority.

  • I am sharing 10 different ways in which the language you choose can diminish your power
  • We are talking about perception and how you actually intend to come across, versus the impression you are creating through your choice of words
  • I am explaining how politeness and humbleness are important but can still be achieved whilst maintaining your authority
  • Use these tips to build your authority at work, build credibility and show the world what you've really got!

Episode Quotes:

"When you ask to 'squeeze into someone else's diary' or say 'I'll just take up 4 minutes of your time', the underlying subconscious message here is 'I won't take up space; I won't take up your precious times; Your time is more valuable than mine'. This kind of seemingly innocent language gives your counterpart all the power and all the decision making capability. It also gives them the perception that you feel 'less than' and less important."  (Rebecca Allen, Career Success Coach and host of Her Ambitious Career podcast)
