Latina Equal Pay Day
November 20, 2019, is Latina Equal Pay Day. It’s not a celebration, it’s a day of awareness.  Many know that lower earnings for women equate to less money to care for their families. It’s been a half of century since President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act yet, there still isn’t equal pay. Latina women earn about 54 cents for every dollar earned by white, non-Hispanic men. There are many layers to factors that contribute to this gap and raising awareness on Latina Equal Pay Day is an opportunity for us all to engage in a deeper conversation about solutions.  The gender wage gap can’t be solved by individuals alone. Companies, government, community organizations also have a role in addressing the solutions. LeanIn.org has comprehensive suggested solutions on their website. As individuals, we can also take an active role in advocating for ourselves.  Make career aspirations known to your supervisors by clearly articulating if you are interested in roles that expand your skill set and pay more. Think clearly about what you want to say and present that in a concise manner.  Be aware of market rate, before heading into a conversation about compensation prepare with facts. Use a few of the online salary tools to understand how much you should be earning based on experience level, education, and very importantly your geographic area.  Ask confidently, when you present your request to your supervisor or tell a job recruiter salary expectations say it with confidence. Be prepared to speak to the value you’ll be adding to the team/organization/company and follow that up with facts of the market rate.  When it comes to equal pay, the more we know the better-informed decisions we can make as it relates to which jobs we accept and money that we decide to accept for the value we add.

Why women leave companies in male dominated industries
Why do women leave companies in male-dominated industries? It is a million-dollar question. The reason why it's a million-dollar question is that the cost of turnover, the cost of losing talent, losing that knowledge that you've invested in, you've hired this great person and that goes out the door and you don't know why that is a massive drain on the bottom line. According to Catalyst Report released in 2017, only 6.6% of women work-full time in male-dominated occupations in the United States. In 2019, these decade long issues are still very pervasive and persistent. Women working in male-dominated cultures have found exciting reasons to be engaged in these industries. They want to work, but they're often forced to quit and leave their jobs through unspoken cultural norms. In this episode, we’ll go through the common obstacles that women face in male-dominated industries that many see as outdated, but they're still relevant as well as talk about the solutions to these obstacles. About the PowerBanking Podcast PowerBanking is The Podcasts for women leaders who work in male-dominated industries. Hosted by Founder of ZeroGap.co & best-selling author, Jacqueline V. Twillie. The focus of this podcast is on tools and strategies that help women enhance their leadership blueprint and embrace her power to effective in work and life. Episode Spotlights [04:00] Most leaders are not aware of all of the issues that women face because women are afraid to talk about it. Challenges Women in Male-Dominated Industries Face [05:50] Pervasive stereotypes: women are weaker, they're not as knowledgeable compared to their male counterparts in the company who are perceived as being stronger, or they're smarter. [06:05] The perception that women are outsiders and they threaten the "way things have been." [06:20] The industry and cultural behaviors have to be more refresh to be inclusive. [06:30] Work-life demands to impact the hours that women are willing to work as they advance in their careers, and grow their families. Women are caring for both children and elderly members in the family, impacts the hours that they are can work. [07:50] Fewer mentoring opportunities which women reported as being important to their success. [08:40] Sexual harassment: it has a new level of awareness such as the #METOO and TIMESUP era. Best Practices For Engaging and Retaining Women Leaders In Companies Within Traditionally Male-Dominated Industries [09:10] Have effective training and development programs and strategies that align business goals with an inclusive business model. [10:10] Solutions for pervasive stereotypes that say women are weak men are strong, and that women are not knowledgeable and men are smarter. [11:07] Have team meetings or company-wide recognition meetings that bring to the forefront examples of women who are performing well in the industry. [11:50] Solution for the view that women are outsiders and they threaten the "way things have been." [12:08] Men should clean up their language they’re talking to women by using colorful language. [12:23] If your company culture is counter to using colorful language, then it's not women who are outsiders who threaten the way things have been, it is that the values haven't been communicated in a way that trickles down into the organization. [12:50] When it comes to “the way things have been,” if a wants to remain innovative, competitive, and in business, they have to adapt with the times and update and have inclusive work environments. [13:35] Solution for the work-life balance impact hours.

Step into your power
Are you going big in your leadership journey? Are you taking risks? Are you being fearless? It can be so hard to take risks, and to be fearless because we usually don't want to make mistakes and we don't want to look bad. For women leaders in male dominated industries, you have so much to prove already and on top of that, you just don't want to let yourself down. A lot of you have very high standards for yourself. But what was the last time you've taken a risk at work and done something new for the very first time? As we kick off today's episode, I'm going to share with you 8 things to help inspire you to step into your power and play big as a leader.  Valuable Quote  “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt  8 Tips to Inspire You To Step Into Your Power and to Play Big [05:55] Get Failure Time On Your Annual Calendar. [06:25] Sometimes failure is both expected and accepted [07:25] Put in your calendar annually as leaders, time away for you to think about your greatest endeavors. [07:20] Get Up. You have to get up when you fall down, when you miss a mark, when you miss a milestone when you don't hit your quarterly goals. It's not the end, you can keep going. [07:55] Take baby steps. Right after a failure don't cancel everything that you have planned. Do one thing that's going to help put you in the right direction. [08:10] Take Inspired Action You have to be intentional. What inspires you to do your best? What is it that motivates you? [08:55] When you are constantly taking inspired action as leaders, you inspire those who look up to you and hopefully follow you and those whom you lead, you also inspire them to take action. [09:12] Be Brave. It's necessary for your company and your team to remain innovative and competitive and profitable. So don't be afraid to step outside of the box to buck the norm. [09:55} Try Again If at first you don't succeed, try and try again. When it comes to stepping into your power, and playing big, sometimes you do have to try again and again and again. [10:30] Surround Yourself With People Who Will Push You To Be The Highest and Grandest Version of Yourself. Favorite quote by Oprah Winfrey. Iron sharpens iron. So when you're out there leading and you're taking the risk, and you're stepping into your power and owning your power, you want to be very protective of your environment. [11:10] Go Big or Go Home. Curate an experience for you to take a big leap and step out of your comfort zone. [12:45] Enjoy The Journey. As leaders, we want to figure things out, we want things to go our way and we want it to be this or that. It's not always the case. Part of the journey is doing your part and then knowing when you have to take hands-off and let the rest of the chips fall where they may. Celebrate moments and sit in gratitude to process. [15:05] Part of enjoying the process as a leader is knowing that sometimes you learn more in a challenging situation. You are forced to think more creatively and think outside of the box. [15:30] Breaking your own rules and learning how to expand your thought patterns.  Resources and Links Mentioned in This Episode Book: Break Your Own Rules by Kathryn Heath, Mary Davis Holt, and Sharon Allen

Know your value, get paid top-dollar! Salary negotiation strategy
 Today we are digging into knowing your value so that you can negotiate your work. Well just for those of you who are catching up, you don't know who I am. I'm president @zerogap.co and at zerogap We work with companies in male-dominated industries to deliver women's leadership training programs. So as we dive into knowing your value so that you can negotiate your worth, this is a very personal topic because worth is tied to a lot of personal beliefs and talking about money is also deeply personal. So first off we're not going to tackle any woo crazy things today. We're going to go through some very practical items that you can use. So if you have a pen and pad, you definitely want to chat down a few notes here. Okay. So when it comes to knowing your value, what do I mean by that? That term gets thrown around very loosely. A lot of people use the term, know your value, but when it comes to your workplace and knowing your value in the workplace, it's about understanding how you solve problems. And how you contribute in a meaningful way to achieve big goals. So each company, when they hire an employee, whether it is the CEO or someone on the entry-level, they're hiring that person to fill a gap. There is a problem that that company is trying to solve and they need a person in that position to actually go through and do the work. That's where the employee comes in. Again, doesn't matter what level you're on at each level, there are expectations now just doing the bare minimum. That's what the paycheck is for. You're paid to do the work, but when you go above and beyond and when you start to deliver exceptional value to the organization, that's where you get to go in and ask for a promotion or a raise or more responsibility or to be placed on special assignments and tied to a bigger bonus.

Problem solving using the LATTE Negotiation Method
With as many problems as all women leaders in male-dominated fields are faced within their profession and workplace, it looks like there is never enough time and resources to solve each one without encountering hardships on the way. Problems keep escalating so fast that often times leaders are forced to take shortcuts to briefly ease the tension points and find solutions to the next problem. As a result, they fail to solve the root of each problem, therefore remaining in an ending-cycle that makes it an uphill task to find any effective solution. That’s where ZeroGap.co. comes in handy. We curate leadership learning experiences to help companies to be more innovative and competitive while tapping into a diverse talent pool. Why does this matter, focusing on women in male-dominated industries? There are numerous reports that show that companies who are diverse in leadership, they innovate and drive higher profitability than those companies who aren't as diverse. At the end of the day, we're all in business, to achieve goals and to make money and if we're not driving results as leaders, we’re going to be extinct. That's what ZeroGap.co does. That's why we curate these leadership experiences to develop the leaders in your organization so that you have a strong pipeline of diverse people leading in your organization. Today’s episodes covers a topic that most people want to avoid – problem-solving. We're no strangers to problems in our personal and professional lives. When it comes to creating solutions, best practices for problem-solving, there are two core skills that can't be overlooked: negotiation and executive presence. How do we boost those skills within our leaders so that they can handle problems very quickly and efficiently with the information that they have available? Sometimes we have the luxury of time and getting plenty of information. But if we're realistic, that's not always the case. Today, Jacqueline V. Twillie, President of ZeroGap.co, is going to show us how we can solve problems using the LATTE and AHA Method. Two Problem Solving Techniques Outlined in This Episode LATTE Method: ·        L: look at the details ·        A: Anticipate challenges ·        T: Think about your walk-away points ·        T: Talk it through ·        E: Evaluate Options AHA Method ·        A: Actions ·        H: Habit ·        A: Attitudes [03:05] Look at details Gather as much information as you can, at the time [03:10] Anticipate challenges That's where you think long term. Strategy comes into play here. [03:23] Think about your walk-away points At what point do we pull away? Do we shut this down? Do we move to something else? [03:30] Talk it through Who else needs to be involved in this conversation, so that when this is rolled out, it's rolled out in a smooth manner? [03:45] Evaluate options Evaluate what you‘re going to do in the most efficient manner in terms of time [04:15] After the problems are solved, it’s time to use the AHA Method ·         A: Attitudes ·         H: Habits ·         A: Actions [04:30] Go back and evaluate the Attitude, Habits, and Actions that led you to that point. [05:00] Think about what you need to repeat or stop doing going forward. [05:30] What executive presence has to do with problem-solving [06:00] Executive presence allows your leaders to communicate more effectively with their team members, peers, and the stakeholders involved.

Leading Teams using the LATTE Method
Companies in male-dominated industries have an awesome opportunity to be competitive and innovative with a diverse team. A recent research shows that companies that embrace diversity in leadership innovate at a faster rate, increase profitability, and pride themselves in better employee engagement and retention than their competitors who have non-diverse leadership teams. Additionally, companies with diverse teams are better at problem-solving, have a broader client base and more engaged customers leading to increased revenues. Therefore, diversity is crucial for any business and there’s a huge untapped lucrative potential for those leaders who do not yet use diversity as a significant tactic for growth, innovation, and competitiveness in their companies. In today’s episode of PowerBanking, we're talking about leading teams using the LATTE Method. What is LATTE? LATTE is an acronym. It's a negotiation framework. We’re going to learn how top leaders can rely on diverse, integrative teams that combine the collective competencies of men and women, people of different ethnicities, older and younger to grow their organizations and increase profit margins using the LATTE Method. If you are a leader in your organization, who self-profess and say, “I'm not a good negotiator,” here's an excellent opportunity to find ways every day, whether it's within one team or across departments, to collaborate more efficiently and effectively to help you accelerate your results. Valuable Quotes “Negotiation is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.” “To find a solution that works for everyone, oftentimes, it's when we think outside of the box. That's where the magic happens. That's where we find a solution that we can replicate in different areas of the business.” 5 Topics Covered in LATTE Negotiation Framework for Teams L - Look at the details A -Anticipate challenges T - Think about the walk-away points T- Talk it through E- Evaluate options [02:55] Negotiation is not only sitting at a table, with a contract, hammering out details [03:20] Negotiation is as simple as coordinating a meeting, scheduling projects and brainstorming ideas [04:00] Five Points in the LATTE Method for Teams 1. L- Look at the details [04:10] Think about the problem are you solving [04:20] When people come to a table for a negotiation, there is an exchange of value 2. A- Anticipate the challenges [04:30] One person wins and one person loses myth demystified [05:00] When negotiating, the goal is to work together, collaborate efficiently, and communicate effectively, to reach an ultimate goal. [5:20] Put all the issues on the table and then look at your areas of potential agreement 3. T- Think about your walk-away points [05:30] Time is money -- understand when you need to regroup or bring in a mediator so that you're not wasting time [06:10] if you spend too much time solving a problem your competitors can offer that solution to your customers and you can lose tons of money 4. T- Talk it through [06:20] Bring the right people or the decision-makers to the table 5. E- Evaluate options [7:10] There's more than one way to reach a solution to a problem – let the teams come in with a frame of reference [7:30] Find a solution that works for everyone [7:40] When you think outside of the box, you find a solution that you can replicate in different areas of the business [7:55] Summary for using the LATTE method for teams Episode Episode Sponsors: Anchor.fm: The easiest way to make a podcast.

The Women's Leadership Challenge

Dealing with underperforming employees who are unfocused and disengaged is one of the greatest challenges that women in business face. Employees who are struggling to keep up can sap up life out of any business if not managed well and on time and can pull a startup under as well. On the other hand, when managed correctly, employees can become a business greatest asset. How do you cope with underperforming employees as a leader? You don’t have to let underperformance problems escalate to a point where you’re forced to fire an employee. One of the highly valuable skills that you should develop as a leader in your organization is being able to transform your underperforming employees into outstanding performers. In today’s episode of PowerBanking, I will tackle the leadership challenge topic, specifically on how to on what do when you really like an employee as a person, but in terms of them getting their work done, they're not cutting it.

Bonus Episode : Leading and Negotiating w/ Jacqueline Twillie
Bonus Episode w/ Jacqueline Twillie, President of ZeroGap.co on the Fearless Freed with Dr. G podcast.  What scares you as an entrepreneurial woman? Does fear and anxiety keep you from achieving your goals in life? It is human nature to sidestep unavoidable situations and emotions that scare us. Who wants to walk straight into something that promises to be a painful and intimidating experience? Irrespective of the cause of the fear, it immobilizes too many women and stops them from achieving their life aspirations and goals as well as what they are capable of doing. The attitude of, “I can’t!” is the most common reaction in a fearful situation and it causes inaction. Fear is a big deceiver and it can kill your hustle as a woman in a male-dominated industry before you even start moving, thus sabotaging your success. Fortunately, you can learn how to overcome, ease and eliminate fear. Whether it’s fear of failure, fear losing money, poverty, avoiding risks, or any other fear, it should not stop you from giving success a chance. On today's episode of PowerBanking, I'm thrilled to join Dr. Charmaine Gregory. Dr. G is an Emergency Medicine Nocturnalist, who is zealous about fitness and wellness.

Thought 💭 Leadership
What comes to mind when you hear the term thought leadership? Add the leader of your action habits and attitude can inspire more change in organization then an email or a stated directive. As leaders we don’t always get the luxury to have time to make every decision. However there are plenty of examples where time is a luxury in the moment and we as leaders don’t take that time to be thoughtful about what we’re going to do next.

The book is  steeped in power, intimacy and vulnerability. By depicting his own personal narrative of abuse, depression and low self-esteem, Pervis illustrates an easy to follow guide for how he used the 4A’s of Surthrival Mode to transmute his life story.  Readers will be left with actionable steps and tools to apply as they embark on their journey to Surthrive.

Black Women Equal Pay Day 2018
#BlackWomensEqualPay Each year, Equal Pay Day for All is held in April, but when we look at the wage gap for women of color, the gap is far greater. When compared to all men, women earn $.80 (cents) on the $1. When compared to White, non-Hispanic men, Black/African American women earn only $.63 (cents) on the $1. This means the typical Black woman must work until August 2018 to be paid what the typical White man was paid at the end of December 2017. This year’s Black Women’s Equal Pay Day is being observed on Tuesday, August 7. In this one-hour webinar, we will discuss Equal Pay Myths vs. Facts Strategies Black Women Can Use To Be Effective While Negotiating For More - Initial Job Offer - Promotions / Raises - Highly Visible Assignments - Change in Work Duties - Exit Packages and more!   "Emulate Excellence without Excuses."  ~ Jacqueline V.

I call BS on MMLAFLEUR
I have a bone to pick with @mmlafleur - the clothes are super cute BUT, the heavily promoted ad suggesting a woman needs to look like she’s eating nails to be a great #negotiator is total BS!!! Women are excellent negotiators. Women outperform men in representational negotiations. While appearance DOES matter going in with a tough as nails approach has a high and I repeat HIGH chance of a woman receiving backlash. The type of backlash that can cause you to be shut out /ignored / and lose a deal.
