We have been talking about women in the workplace for the past 20 years. This is a good time to get to know them. We know they are just beginning to understand your business, but we want to see them understand it. We want to make sure we get the help we need to make the most sense out of what these women have to say.
It’s not always easy to get to know a woman in the workplace. Most are extremely cautious, guarded, and self-conscious. A woman in the workplace has to work very hard to get to know you, and often these women have to work very hard to keep their own relationships with men in check.
The problem is that most of our business relationships are with men. The men who we work with are the ones who are the most comfortable with discussing things that are sensitive, and they take the most comfort from these women talking about themselves. This is called “self-awareness.” When a woman tells us something about herself, we try to understand her situation, her history, and what she wants. The last thing we want to do is be condescending or dismissive.
It’s fine to be uncomfortable around a man, but don’t make it your goal to make him the most comfortable. Don’t be afraid to be a little uncomfortable around him. He might be the coolest guy in the room, but you can’t force him to like you, or make him think you’re his type.
Being uncomfortable around a man is not the same thing as being a jerk. There are people who you can be very uncomfortable around, and there are times when youll be comfortable around them. For example, it can be uncomfortable when youre sitting in a room with a guy youre not interested in talking to, or sitting around the dinner table with a guy who makes you uncomfortable.
I think that most of the time being comfortable around the right type of woman is a good thing. Its a way of saying you want to get to know her and understand her. But, there are other times when youre not so much comfortable in a social situation, and this is that. A woman who is comfortable in her own skin and who doesn’t mind if you poke fun at her when she does something really dumb, is a great person to be around.
In a lot of ways, it’s the same reason why the average person thinks that being around a rich guy is a bad thing. We’re not comfortable in any of the social situations we are involved in. But there are times when the right woman is just the right woman.
The best ones are the ones who take a bit of a joke to heart. This is especially true when your are a girl. If you know youll like a particular person, youll be more likely to want to be around them. This is not to say that a girl who will just take a joke is always the right one. But if you dont mind her being a bit silly, shell probably be more fun to be around most of the time.
I don’t know about you, but I like my women to be a bit silly. I also don’t think that this is a bad thing. There is nothing wrong with being a bit silly. I think it is perfectly acceptable to be goofy when the other person is goofy. The difference is, the other person is likely to be laughing at you and you are likely to be laughing at them. That’s okay though.
I get my own little bit of silliness from time to time. But, I think that a lot of times it is the other person who is being silly. In Deathloop, I get a lot of silliness from the Visionaries. They are often silly and sometimes stupid, and I actually find myself laughing at them a lot. The funny thing is how, at the end of the day, we are all the same. Thats how I see the world.
