    How to remove the shyness while working with female employees?

    I am an employee in a multinational company. I have to work in teams for different projects. The problem is that I am very shy and often find it difficult to communicate with the female members of our team properly. This is also affecting my work to certain extent. How can I get rid of this problem?

    Hi,
    You are working in corporate world, so there is no difference between male and female in work.Don't be shy while talking with female members,think that you are in working platform and here every one is equal.If you feel shy while working with girls it creates so much of trouble to you because your manger or fresher in your team are might be girls.If you feel shy you are unable to clarify doubts by asking your manager because you feel to shy to ask.If she is your co worker in that case also you can't share your ideas effectively at that time you feel shy to share your doubts you may lose so many opportunities some times you may lose confidence on you.Try to avoid those kind of shy.if you stop being shy you can efficiently communicate with others for this you have to be more social.Try to be active in extra curricular activities.[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]shyness is a feeling of inferiority,try to over come it,don't think that you are lower than girls.Don't be nervous while talking with girls if feel nervous try to recollect your strengths ,appraisals and achievements .All the best[/FONT]

    Dear guest,

    Quite often we people are surrounded with the fact that we have to work for the other gender or with the company of the other gender. Many, particularly men find it pretty difficult to do so due to shyness. It is not a matter of feeling bad about it as it is common in a country like India. All that you got to do are remember these following points.
    1. Know for what you are working.
    2. It is important to know that you have a family who expect a lot from you.
    3. You can't afford to lose your cool and shy out when you are needed.
    4. Think of your female team mates as your sisters. This makes you feel confident.
    5. Try respecting others as if you are a leader. They will feel confident themselves.
    6. You can talk about it to your manager or superior whom you can trust.
    7. Or go to a counseller. Usually a company will have its own counseller.

    Thank you...

    Hello there !!!

    yes you are right dear the shyness in talking to the female worker will surely ruin your work
    and work profile.
    but, what you need to do is to try to talk to female worker although you are feeling shyness in
    talking with him. ok ??

    this will end up your shyness one day.
    because your shyness will not go only in one day , it will take some time.
    so, keep talking with them and one day you will realize that you are not
    getting any difficulty in talking to them. ok???

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Re: How to remove the shyness while working with female employees?

    Hi friend

    You should not worry at all as i am sure many male employees would be facing the same problem as you. I think that you are shy from your childhood and that's the reason you haven't been able to get rid of this habit of yours. That's why in today's times there are so many co-education schools and colleges so that males and females can mix freely with each other and thus don't have to face such problems later on in their future. Maybe you have done your education from a all boy's school and that may explain the reason for your shyness.

    But I am sure with a little effort you will certainly get rid of this habit of yours. You should , firstly, be confident of yourself and that's the major point for you if you have to get rid of this shyness of yours. I am sure you would have communicated with many females before also, so you should just communicate with your colleagues as you had communicated with them. That will certainly give you confidence.

    Next thing is you should be sure of yourself . Don't think how they would react if you spoke to them. Just be positive and think that everything will be good only. you all are here to work and thus you should not have any hesitation in talking to them regarding your work and about your project.Don't hesitate if you have to discuss anything with them about the project. They are your teammates and you should have the guts and confidence to communicate with them.

    So friend don't let your performance suffer just because of this habit of yours. Try to get rid of this as soon as possible so that you don't have any problems in the future. Also as you start communicating with them, with passage of time you will be more experienced in this and your shyness will automatically go away. I am sure they will be plaesed to talk to you if you show them respect and talk to them in a polite manner.

    Do your best and I am sure you will succeed in your goal.Good luck friend. Try to take this as a challenge and I am sure you will be able to come out as a winner. Thanks

    Hello ,
    Well yes , many people are shy or get a little tentative when it comes to interacting with
    female colleagues wokring together .
    You should work on it and try to remove the feeling of uneasiness . They are your co-workers and it
    is normal to have a conversation with them .

    1. Removing the feeling of differentness amongst the sexes . YOU should believe that they are the same as you all
    are working together in a firm .

    2. Raising trust and friendship amongst the female employees through interaction building events and activities.

    3. If you possess good inter-sex professional relationships , it can actually help a company perform well and give
    you an advantage of being confident and composed .

    4. You should try to have a casual conversation with the one you are closely related at work . Try talking to her in your
    leisure time . You will notice that you will become freinds soon .

    Then , you can meet other freinds too , you will slowly realise that you are NOT shy anymore .
    It is nothing to be depressed about . You just need to be polite and act like a gentlemen when you talk
    to the ladies .


    All the best ,
    Than you !
