Women in leadership positions in credit unions: The barriers we create in our minds

first_imgThink about this … I was planning on putting on a telesummit with 25 other women.  I had hand-selected them, had the email invitation to them, and was excited to be organizing and facilitating it, until those words creeped into my brain – I’m not big enough or famous enough or smart enough. I even threw in tall enough and told my husband I was cancelling it before I even got started.  He asked me why and I gave him my spiel of the “enough” nonsense.  He looked at me and said, very calmly and lovingly, “are you nuts?” He continued with “People want to be around you. They trust you and admire you.  They respect who you are and how you are in it for them. Don’t let them down.”  What do you say to that?  I said I would give it until 6:00 and if I have any second thoughts, I’m cancelling it.  So, at 1 minute to 6, I hit send on 25 emails and turned my computer off, totally.  I couldn’t bear people telling me no and called it a night. Then, 12 hours later, at 6am, I turned my computer on and 24 of the 25 said, “yes, absolutely, thank you for asking me, honored,” and on and on. I looked for the 25th and an hour later it also came in with a big yes. She was in Australia and the time difference was the only reason it was late.  I share this story often because no matter who you are, what you represent or why you do what you do, “enough” will creep in and you have to do everything to chase it away. It’s all about those barriers that we have in our minds, are they real or not?The telesummit was a huge success. The women, the information, the value was such a winning combination. I had created a barrier that could have cancelled everything great and left me with the “oh woe is me syndrome.”  You see I had created barriers that were bigger than my goals and already had the scenario playing out of what would happen if I had decided to go through with this crazy plan. I decided that the only way I was going to use the word “enough” was to convince myself that enough was clearly enough. All the results I knew in my mind that were going to happen, didn’t and that is usually what happens. We are so sure that whatever we want to do won’t happen in a positive way that we can visualize failure and smell it before it even has a moment to be created. Why do we do that?There are several things that cause us to lose our confidence and feel like the barriers are closing in.  Here are just a few: Age – Many times we let our age define us. Whether we are too young or too old. Sometimes we tell ourselves that and sometimes others tell us what we should and shouldn’t do.  If you want to break down some of those barriers, don’t listen to them.What other people think – No matter what we tell ourselves, we still compare ourselves to others. That is really a waste of time and energy. Why compare yourself to those on social media since they are showing only what they want you to see? Where is that being authentic? Feel good about what you are doing, what you have already done and what you are planning to do. Don’t let anyone take that away from you.Toxic people – Who are you surrounding yourself with? Are they people that you trust and admire? Will they support you to reach your goals? Or…are they energy vampires? I make it a point to release all toxic people from my life. I don’t lose them because they can be found.  I release them so they don’t return. Fear – As I mentioned, we have great imaginations and we tend to create an entire volume of stories that can happen to us. Fortunately they don’t.  Fear is a choice. I encourage my clients to step into the unknown and I always ask, “What’s the worst that can happen?” and follow that up with, “What’s the best that can happen?”Are you living in the past or hoping for the future? We all know that the past is the past and it can’t be changed. However, when you concentrate on the future, you do have the ability to make it something that you are excited to reach…but it’s still not here right now. Being in the present and living in the present lets others know that you are ready for the opportunities that are in front of you and that you are taking the present for what it is…a gift.Do you see yourself creating barriers from any of the reasons I mentioned?  Time to talk it out with a coach or mentor or someone you trust and flip your mindset to the positive side, so those barriers are taken down, not built up. The truth is, most people are not willing to disregard some of the feelings they have and do what needs to be done to eliminate the barriers. It’s time to understand that when you break through the barriers once, you will realize it was never as bad as you thought it would be.  When your “Why” is strong enough, you will be willing to do the “How” …Think of it this way … Start small – we have to practice to get it right. If you’re in sports or play an instrument or anything that you want to become the expert in, you have to practice. You start small and work your way up. The more often you face that barrier and confront it, the more successful you will be and the next time it shows up, you’ll be able to walk right through it. Then … Trust yourself – What will it take for you to stop worrying about what others think or what their opinion of you is? When you start to trust yourself, your potential is unlimited. No matter how successful we are, we still second guess ourselves. When I was at a conference, a Queen was in the audience and she told me that every time she has to make a decision that will affect someone’s life, she second guesses herself, so consider yourself in great company. Take time to learn the lessons that life throws your way. These lessons will be critical to your success as you make progress along your journey toward your goals.Arthur C.

GSK to develop plant-based COVID-19 vaccine with Canada’s Medicago

first_imgThe world’s largest vaccine-maker GSK has put its vaccine booster technology to work in a potential new COVID-19 shot, to be developed with a Canadian biopharmaceutical company backed by tobacco company Philip Morris.Rather than developing its own vaccine in the global race to combat the pandemic, GSK has instead focused on contributing its adjuvant technology to at least seven other global companies, including Sanofi and China’s Clover.The latest deal, with Canadian firm Medicago, uses plant-based technology that differs from GSK’s other coronavirus-partnerships and boosts the London-listed company’s chances of finding a successful candidate and scaling production relatively quickly. There are no approved vaccines for the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus, but 19 vaccines are being trialled in humans globally and some treatments, such as Gilead’s remdesivir, have been approved in certain regions.Medicago’s approach, already used in a flu vaccine awaiting Canadian approval, takes the leaves of a plant as bioreactors to produce one of the three spike proteins of the novel coronavirus, the S-spike, which can be then used in the vaccine with GSK’s adjuvant.GSK said on Tuesday the companies aimed to make their vaccine available in the first half of next year and produce about 100 million doses by the end of 2021. An early-stage human trial of three different dosage levels is expected to begin in mid-July.Adjuvants, or efficacy boosters, are added to some vaccines to increase the immune response with the aim of achieving more lasting immunity against an infection.Medicago, headquartered in Quebec City, Canada, is privately owned. PMI has a 33% stake, and Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma holds the remainder.PMI has said it is evaluating options for its stake in Medicago. It was not immediately available for further comment.Topics :last_img read more

Many pretenders to Palace throne

first_img “Obviously Tim’s said what he’s had to say. “It’s certainly a good job for someone though. “The chairman still has his views on what he wants, and I think that’s why he’s openly looking still, and I think that will continue.” Cardiff’s complaints against Mackay also led to the resignation of Palace’s sporting director Iain Moody. Moody was implicated in the alleged text message conversations with Mackay, during his time as head of recruitment at Cardiff. Admitting there was no defence for the allegations against Mackay and Moody, Millen tipped the former Cardiff boss to find further work in football in future. “I don’t know how far down the line we were to agreeing for Malky to be our manager, but it was out there and then for all this to come out has shocked football,” he said. “It’s a shame, it’s not right what’s been said, Malky’s a good football person and he was a good manager and I’m sure he will be again in future. “And Iain’s very good at his job. “But the stuff that’s out there isn’t right, and you can’t condone that. “So the manner of the way the week’s materialised is tough to take, and it’s very confusing on what we’re trying to do. “The board have done their homework on people, spoken to people. “For Malky to be taken out of the equation, you almost have to start again.” Crystal Palace’s turbulent managerial search will not deter top candidates from chasing the vacant Selhurst Park job, according to Keith Millen. Caretaker manager Millen does not believe Palace will struggle to secure Tony Pulis’ successor, despite the club already missing out on two targets. Palace were forced to pull the plug on appointing Malky Mackay after the FA launched an investigation into Cardiff’s allegations he sent racist, sexist and homophobic text messages. Tim Sherwood withdrew his interest after initially being deemed second-choice to Mackay, while bookies’ tips Steve Clarke and Ally McCoist claim Palace have made no contact. Palace were overwhelmed 3-1 by West Ham in Saturday’s home Premier League clash, but Millen still believes there is interest in the Eagles job. “The manager’s job is a good job for anyone, there’s plenty of people that would want it,” said Millen. “You look at the squad we’ve got, and if we can add two or three to that we’ll be fine. “The fans are the best in the league for me, so there are no issues about maybe trying to attract the right people: it’s just maybe whether the chairman’s found the right one yet. “It is a great job, I think any job in the Premier League is a great job. “I know the people at this club and I can honestly say it’s a great club to work for. “I don’t know the timings and dealings of Malky, Tim, the conversations they’ve had.

Mourinho takes swipe at Aguero ahead of City clash

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a veiled swipe at Manchester City star Sergio Aguero before Sunday’s derby showdown at the Etihad Stadium.Mourinho said of Aguero that “there are little things in his game I am not a fan of”, although he declined to elaborate further when asked.Aguero, City’s all-time leading scorer, was criticised heavily by Mourinho after a 0-0 draw with United at the Etihad in April 2017.United midfielder Marouane Fellaini was sent off for a headbutt on the Argentina international, with Mourinho suggesting the striker’s reaction had been over-dramatic.“I saw Aguero in the tunnel but (there was) no broken nose, no broken head, (and) his face is nice as always,” Mourinho said at the time.Mourinho was quick to pay tribute to Aguero’s qualities as a goalscorer before United’s latest clash with arch rivals City, but he dropped a strong hint that he believes there is a dark side to his game.“I only fear when I play against him. I admire him because of his fantastic qualities,” Mourinho said.“There are little things in his game that I am not a big fan of, but the numbers speak by themselves. The number of goals he scores.“It is not about scoring for one season, it is about scoring goals in your career. It is about scoring goals in a different league, like the Spanish league. Clearly he is a goalscorer all over the world.”Asked what it was about Aguero he was not a fan of, Mourinho responded: “I keep (that) for me.”Meanwhile, the United manager made what appeared to be a reference to City’s spending when discussing his own squad rebuilding job at Old Trafford.Mourinho has spent an estimated £370 million ($480 million) on players since arriving at United in May 2016, while City manager Pep Guardiola is thought to have spent around £485 million over the same period. – Case for the defence –United have spent extensively in central defence, midfield and attack during Mourinho’s reign, although the manager chose to focus on the full-back positions, an area in which City invested heavily in the summer of 2017, when they signed Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo.Mourinho cited the example of Luke Shaw, a player who is now a regular in the United side after a long spell struggling for form, as an example of his ability to develop players on his books rather than dip into the transfer market for a replacement.“If I need a full-back and I buy four, it is easier,” Mourinho said.“If I need a full-back because I am not happy with Luke Shaw’s level, the easiest thing is to buy four. Some clubs can buy four.”City have only bought three full-backs under Guardiola, but no other Premier League club has spent as much money in that position over the past three years, suggesting that they were the target of Mourinho’s comments.“We didn’t buy a left-back for three years. We were wishing and working for Luke Shaw to be that left-back, but during that process we played Matteo Darmian, we played Ashley Young, we played Marcos Rojo,” he said.“We didn’t buy four. There is a difference. To buy four you only need good scouting and money. To make players takes more time.”United go into Sunday’s derby having won three games in a row, reducing talk of a crisis that, at one stage in early October, looked as if it might cost Mourinho his job.The former Chelsea boss says fevered talk of problems at Old Trafford comes with the territory of managing such a prestigious club.“It is Manchester United’s fault. When I say fault, I mean for the right reasons,” he said.“It is the history of the club that makes one defeat become a crisis. It is the history, the prestige.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
