What have you all done to stop/address mansplaining at work? I manage someone who is a great performer, great team player, but is constantly mansplaining. He’s inadvertently condescending in team settings with men & women as well. It’s like he’s trying too hard to be helpful and it just lands all wrong. How can I be direct about this without crushing his spirit?

I would be honest with examples and try to put in under some type of competency like leadership or communication.

“I’ve noticed a few examples where you may be communicating in a way that may not land well with others. EXAMPLE. I would recommend framing your thoughts more like XY - your insights are awesome and I love having you on the team, and this adjustment is going to make you a lot more effective!”

Feeling a bit down after a negative pregnancy test today - we’ve officially passed the six month mark of TTC. I’m 33, progesterone, prolactin, and thyroid all look normal but my cycles suck. They will regularly stretch into the 40 - 50 day range but OB seems really unconcerned. I keep getting the “it’s totally normal to take this long” 😕 I’m scared we’ll waste a year just to find out there is a problem.
