"Hello? Can you hear me?"
We often hear two clichés: “Women are more emotional and less analytical,” and “Men don’t ask for directions…and get lost.” Gender Intelligence is the ability to understand, appreciate, and utilize the innate characteristics that distinguish male and female beyond the obvious biological and cultural factors—including mindset and behavioral differences that affect our communication style. Awareness of how and why men and women think and act can begin to help us understand gender-related tendencies and engage more effectively in the workplace and other areas of life. Devra Korwin, of INTERACTIONS Transformative Coaching & Consulting, looks at gender dynamics and makes suggestions for building your gender intelligence and improving communication in the workplace and outside.
