Our two guests discuss competition amongst women, primarily in workplace settings. The cause of competition begins as children, where we are socialized in believing in the scarcity mindset. This learned mindset influences women’s ability to rise confidently up the corporate ladder to achieve their career goals. Also discussed, how women’s male counterparts witness and perceive these often hostile engagements within the workplace. Lisa Carnevale shares her research on this very important topic.
