Description - Same Words, Different Language by Barbara Annis

Men and women are supposed to be equal. They now do the same work as each other, but somehow, somewhere, communications have broken down. Women still think men doubt their abilities, and men still feel that women are blaming them for their problems. What has gone wrong? Barbara Annis, a gender specialist, offers this practical guide to how gender differences lead to misunderstandings - and reveals what you can do about them. The volume is targeted at everyone who lives and works with the opposite sex, and includes advice for companies who find it difficult to hold on to talented women of their staff. It also: reveals the five top "challenges" men and women experience with the opposite sex; explains the blind spots and different "styles" of behaviour that men and women follow; shows how the same words have different meanings and how to recognize these; provides insights and strategies for improving communication; uses real-life scenarios and practical techniques to turn communication breakdown into win-win relationships; and covers issues such as conflict resolution, harassment and the workplace.
