Sometimes Instead of Leveling up You Need to Adapt the Playing Field
A Hollywood story about office politics— and the hero is a pair of jeans!
Actually, the hero was my client — a glass-ceiling smasher, a studio higher-up who got there by being better than the men. Her problem: She commanded her team while wearing Chanel power suits which created a great divide. Her team thought of her as a “dictator,” “high and mighty,”and used a word I won’t mention here.
When she finally traded her power suits for jeans and silk blouses, it was as much a shock — she’d stepped outside her comfort zone — as Ferragamos were for our faded t-shirt techie.
But the shift she created was instant. She immediately felt she UNDERSTOOD her team. And her team opened up to her. Needless to say, their work improved dramatically. A once toxic workplace relationship became one of creative communication.
