Leadership and the Sexes

Author: Barbara Annis

From Publisher's Weekly: ...Corporate moguls Gurian and Annis illustrate how brain chemistry influences gender and how gender in turn powerfully affects every aspect of workplace behavior. They contend that corporations attentive to gender and behavior can enhance their performance, competitive edge and bottom line. They discuss how men and women wield leadership, bond, regard and execute authority and approach management and conflict resolution skills... Though they tackle the big questions... they are at their best when at their most practical, using step-by-step instructions, exercises and simply worded GenderTools to teach men and women to understand each other in meetings and on the golf course. Though a front-loaded density of neuroscience may deter the casual browser, readers with a genuine interest and a desire to improve workplace gender relations will do well with this pragmatic and well-intentioned guide.
