Listen as she explains how language biases inform our perceptions and even our careers. Plus, hear how history and even gender roles have shaped the ways we speak today. The Power of Perception: How and why your speech might influence a job interview, business opportunity, or even your social identity. Learn to break down those unconscious biases. How Women Lead Change: Did you know women typically lead shifts in how we speak? Fridland offers fascinating historical examples to prove how our modern "norms" in language often evolved this way. Watch Out for These Habits: Though Fridland doesn't outright declare these "bad", get insight into speech patterns like vocal fry and discourse markers ("like", "well", "oh") that are frequently judged unfairly due to biases. ➡️ Show Links https://successstorypodcast.com YouTube: https://youtu.be/BfkjIlAjha4 Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/success-story-with-scott-d-clary/id1484783544 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/7iVUYI1XzbKPYKiS4HAltf ➡️ Watch the Podcast On Youtube https://www.youtube.com/c/scottdclary Our Sponsors: * Check out 1Password: 1password.com/CLARY * Check out : betterhelp.com/SUCCESSPOD * Check out Factor and use my code successpod50 for a great deal: www.factor75.com * Shop the eufy video lock: https://shop.eufy.com/VideoLock or order it on Amazon today!
