WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
Women make 50% of the population, but they make less than 6% women CEOs in the Fortune 500 list. Besides the discrimination system that women are facing at work (and not only there!), they are also being held back by matters that they’ve been internalizing as girls and teenagers. Through puberty, a lot of young women started to care more about being a woman than being successful, assertive and combative.

WHAT ABOUT TROUBLE MAKERS?
Trouble Makers believes that success and assertiveness belong to any gender. We believe that women can stay themselves whilst still leading and making important decisions.

OKAY, SO WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?
Trouble Makers is an organization that shakes women in order to help them get out of the confidence trap. We organize public workshops and others within companies, gathering women to empower them into their professional careers. We train women through acts and mind rebuilding using social sciences, pop culture, history, politics and media.

SO WHAT ABOUT THIS NEXT EVENT ON MAKING DECISIONS?
1 – Why do (too much) women feel uncomfortable making decisions?
Where does it come from? Why do we feel illegitimate every time we make a decision? And worse, some women tell us that they feel even more terrible AFTER making the decision. But, why? Why is it that my male colleagues feel so comfortable standing up for their decision, even though it’s been proved that they’re weren’t the best decisions to make? Also, why is it that when women make decisions, they’re often seen as bossy or bitchy – when men aren’t qualified the same way?

2 – How does this affect my self-confidence, self-esteem and how does it affect the way people see me?
We will see the consequences of hesitation and of not standing firm on decisions we’ve made. Is it preferable not to make any decision, or to make the wrong one? How not standing on your decisions limits yourself and your future decisions?

3 – Can I get over it? Yes.
How do I make the right decision? How do I cope with the negative comments about me making decisions and standing for them? Get to learn:
how to make the right decision
how to cope with the negative comments (‘bitchy’, ‘bossy’…) regarding the said decision
how to stand up for what you’ve decided

The main goal is to unlearn what we (as women) have internalized so far, so you can rebuild your mind and actions.

4 – Train your language and your brain into new set-ups
Learn the key to make (great) decision – what is your mind supposed to think? Know what terms to use. Get to the point instead of focusing on what people think of you
