Yes to all except Boss's trust. Mine over trusts me. lol
molly
25:14
Do you think you can have both (respect and likability)?
Jie Zhang
25:16
I’m proud of my work and capabilities, and striving to be respected. but people can think I’m selfish or flashy and not likeable
Alexe
25:28
Does it have to be one or the other? Can you want to be respected and liked?
Vanessa
27:35
I often find that if you bring up the hard questions in meetings people see you as “mean” as a woman
Vanessa
27:43
But if you are a man that’s “normal”
Ruby Lin
27:50
What if leadership team asks me for my opinions but then when I give my thoughts, they just go with what other people (more senior) say?
Shiyan
27:55
I feel liked at times and not respected. I have to push to get my ideas taken and not taken for granted
Olaya
27:58
+1 Vanessa
MARIVEEN
28:06
agree Vanessa....
Amy Taros
28:38
+1 Vanessa, but not so much “mean” as “negative”
Vanessa
28:48
Yes Amy, I agree.
Vanessa
29:05
“Negative” or god forbid (pardon my French) a “b*tch”
Vanessa
29:14
(I hate that word)
hannah

Jeannette Lavoie
37:10
It's fine for a while, then starts cutting out and sounding digitized
Marta Smith
37:13

alix
40:54
What to do when communication seems open but actions says otherwise ?
morgan
44:41
I am curious how to build trust without gossiping. I don’t like to gossip or complain because I find it draining but I find a lot of people build relationships around that - they complain together and that bonds them.
hannah
45:31
How do you “serve” without saying yes to everything?
Anna MacLachlan
45:50
^^^
Olaya
47:39
You mean positive feedback as constructive, even if it is not a praise?
namibia torres
49:31
I understood it as constructive, that could also be praise but anything that could do their job better (sometimes praise let’s us know what our strengths are).
namibia torres
49:59
Anything that could help them do their job better*
MARIVEEN
50:05
Some of the best advice that I've gotten about serving, is to make sure I understand my values and my priorities, what's important to me.... then be choosy in the service that it supports what I value.
MARIVEEN
50:41
To say yes to the right things, not to everything.
hannah
51:45
Thank you Ashley and Mariveen!
Ruby Lin
53:04
How do you take credit but still be humble?
Olaya
53:11
How to do 2nd point without feeling you are bragging?
molly
53:47
+1 to Ruby’s question
Kiersten R
54:09
When / what opportunities do you think it is acceptable to do this
Kiersten R
55:13
I don’t have one on ones with my boss, so there’s not opportunities to really share this
Kiersten R
55:38
Unapologetic contribution bullet point
Jeannette Lavoie
55:55
Why not ask for 1-1s with your boss?
Marta Smith
58:50
how do we develop better self-confidence?
caitlin
01:02:26
that is a cute jacket.
Olaya
01:03:12
How to avoid being perceived as over ambitious?
namibia torres
01:03:58
I’m new to a city and have to start building my network. How can I build trust in my new community where no one knows me. Actions I’ve taken have included attending conferences and meet ups, following up with people I connect with, being proactive about meeting with people. How do I turn all those meetings into meaningful connections that turn into building trust within the community?
hannah
01:04:17
I am overwhelmed with volume of work… I am doing the work of an entire department. People see this, and my boss sees this, but I feel like he doesn’t trust me to hire people/form a team to tackle these tasks.

My work is starting to look and feel rushed, and I personally am not proud of it because of that. He is the COO and I am a manager.
molly
01:04:46
Do you have specific advice for building trust in male dominated company as a woman?
molly
01:06:02
i.e. should you highlight that you bring a new perspective / diversity, or is drawing attention to that difference creating more barriers?
Alexe
01:06:20
How do you deal with a situation where promotions and raises only happen once a year and you are told you won’t be eligible this year for either. How do you stay motivated for another year and continue to build trust?
alix
01:06:40
Thanks
Olaya
01:08:09
Women are usually expected to keep quiet, and if you claim what you think you deserve, you can be perceived as over ambitious (because women are not supposed to be ambitious)
Jie Zhang
01:08:35
If there is a backlash against women for being confident, should we apologize before keeping track of our accom

namibia torres
01:08:52
