Cracking The Gender Communications Code!
Men may be from Mars; Women may be from Venus, but your company is on Planet Earth, where the genders need to work together! In today’s workplace, diversity is the dominant buzzword, and men and women working together, swapping ideas as equals and sharing power has become the norm. But this level playing field is not without its issues. Because men and women lead, communicate and even view power in different ways, misunderstandings are inevitable. In this compelling program, Glaser presents a new framework for “deciphering” subtle codes and offers valuable insights for improving workplace collaboration.
The New Paradigm for Women Leaders
Traditionally, working in corporate America was like swimming in a pool of sharks. Command-and-control was the watchword of the day, but this tough, arrogant, and often ruthless management style felt foreign to most women. Fortunately, today a new style of leadership is dominating the waters. The Dolphin is highly intelligent…a gifted communicator…a caring and decisive leader. In fact Dolphins have the very characteristics that companies require in today’s ever-changing global environment.
