In this updated and expanded edition, and lively presentation, Dr. Pat Heim and Tammy Hughes, leading experts in the areas of management and gender differences, explain some of the "invisible rules" between men and women that are a part of the workplace.
Men and women live in different cultures and tend to lead in different ways according to the research. As a result they have different rules regarding what is considered "appropriate" adult behavior. Unfortunately, neither gender is aware of these disparate norms and rules and often misread each other. Consequently, what seems natural to one gender culture seem mysterious, baffling, and wrong to the other.
While men and women are doing what works in their own culture, the same behavior can backfire across cultures. Consequently, what seems natural to one gender culture can seem mysterious and baffling to the other. The differences are not right or wrong, but by making these invisible rules visible, Dr. Heim and Tammy provide the basis for better understanding, communication and teamwork.
