Although we are different, men and women are designed to be allies and can complement each other’s limitations; we can fill in the blanks for each other. Conventional wisdom tells us that “our greatest strength is our greatest weakness.” We have all witnessed a person rely on a strength in the wrong place or at the wrong time. Ouch! They fail to develop other strengths outside their behavioral repertoire that are more appropriate for the situation. One of the benefits of women and men coming together in the workplace is we can learn from each other. As a case in point, coed teams are usually higher functioning and produce a superior level of results than same-sex groups. Organizations are more effective when they apply both “female” and “male” strengths to maximize the bottom line and reach their goals.
This program explores how the sexes communicate or how they don’t communicate! Although there are many individual differences in communication style, research has uncovered some interesting trends in differences between the sexes. Specifically, differences in listening, nonverbal and verbal communication will be identified. Suggestions for improving communication between the sexes are offered.
