Research has shown that women can inadvertently damage their careers by over-apologising in the workplace. Victoria McLean will talk us through the psychology behind repeatedly saying 'sorry' in relation to gender, culture and a lack of self-confidence but also explain the negative impact over-apologising can have on a woman's career and ambition.
Discussion will include practical tips on how to overcome the apologising habit by having the courage of our convictions and ways to increase our sense of empowerment at work.
