She Said, He Said, What? Gender and Communication

Have you ever heard the saying: Men are from Mars and women are from Venus?   Women and Men communicate differently and to co-exist successfully, we need to be aware of each others' styles of communication (non-verbal and verbal) to avoid miscommunication.

Ever wonder why men prefer not to ask for directions?  It is because men communicate to compete and women communicate to collaborate.  So, a man asking for directions is admitting to losing.  During conversations, women tend to nod their heads to indicate that she is listening.  A man observes the nodding and assumes that it means that the woman is agreeing with what he says.  By learning how men and women communicate, you will be able to improve your personal and working relationships.

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Gain an understanding about how men and women communicate differently
  • Develop skills and tips for working more effectively with men and women
  • Learn why women and men communicate the way they do
