Presented by 

Gretchen Hydo, Master Certified Coach


In this session, we will explore the profound impact of rules on our lives, whether inherited or acquired from society, religion, or education. By examining common examples like “Be a good girl/Boys don’t cry” and “Your dream will never pay the bills,” we will uncover how these rules shape our identities and can turn us into secret keepers. We will also emphasize the importance of prioritizing our own needs and wants, rather than succumbing to the pressures of people-pleasing. By doing so, we can create a life that genuinely reflects our values, beliefs, and unique qualities.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand the impact of rules: Recognize how rules can shape our lives and influence our choices
  • Challenge limiting labels: Identify the labels that we carry and how they hold us back from being our true selves while learning strategies to overcome these limitations
  • Evaluate external rules: Examine common examples of rules that have been imposed on us by society or loved ones and evaluate if they align with our values and beliefs
  • Identify your own rules: Learn how to question the rules you live by and identify your own rules for your life, based on your unique values, beliefs, and desires
  • Embrace your individuality: Emphasize the importance of living authentically and embracing your individuality, without letting societal norms or other people’s expectations hold you back

Regardless of your gender, this workshop will provide valuable insights, practical strategies, and a deeper understanding of how to combat gender bias, break down self-imposed barriers, and foster a more inclusive and equitable work environment. Join us now to gain the knowledge and tools necessary to
create a more inclusive and equal workplace where everyone can thrive and succeed.
