Of course we mean legal drugs - the ones you are producing every minute of every day - make them work for you:

‘A Gender Pay Gap exists in most organisations; the current national mean average is 17.4% and the Gender Pay Gap median average is 18.4% nationally’

Follow 3 key neuroscience tips to improve your chances:

· Build that relationship. ‘People are 6x more likely to make a deal with someone they like’ How will you release the oxytocin (relationship/trust neurotransmitter) in your counterpart?
Watch others closely to discover their real needs - what really drives and motivates your boss/manager? How can you lock into that?

· Start your meeting with shared vision. This stimulates the Pre Frontal Cortex (trust centre in the brain), invokes empathy and says ‘let’s work together’

· Success correlates with confidence just as closely as competence. Display confidence – speak early and often in calm and relaxed manner, lower your tone and use expansive arm gestures. Remind yourself frequently of your successes – this reinforces your neural pathways and becomes a habit, so releasing Dopamine (meaning you want more), Serotonin (a feel good mood enhancer) and Endorphins (your natural ‘happy’ drug).

Become addicted, become a neurochemical junkie!

(Interestingly research shows that women perform far better when under a pseudonym or in a blind audition – not always practical!)

'I've done Harvard and Getting to Yes and this is better' - Amanda Williams IET

At ICD we are two negotiation and communication specialists who focus on sharing our cutting edge neuroscience research to give a greater insight into the impact gender has on our behaviours, through coaching and training interventions.
Our passion is helping women (and men) work to their full potential collaboratively by giving them the tools and techniques and understanding to move ahead. Our goal is to create a greater cross gender alignment so building cooperative and trusting relationships - we are different, let's understand and embrace what we have - together.
