I'm currently reading a book which deals with a topic I'm exploring: how different men and women "tick" and what that means for communication and relationships inside and outside of the business environment.
It actually opens up a completely new aspect for, but not exclusively, leadership.
The book provided me with some insights which made sense to me, nothing revolutionary though.
Until I came to a part of the story where the author describes the different ways of thinking.
The masculine or male way - single focused.
And the feminine or female way - the brain goes in all kinds of directions.
Btw - this is not necessarily about gender...but often is...more in the podcast.
The fact is though - it impacts communication big time.
I clearly noticed that when the author describes the typical dynamic as a result of the differences. I had to laugh out loud - not necessarily because it was funny, but because I felt that she was talking about me (and some of the men in my life).
What an epiphany!
I had no clue that this was behind the dynamic of these conversations.
Listen in to this short episode where you learn:
1. What single focus is
2. Why communication between men and women can easily go pear shape
3. The alternative (which leads to far better results)
Let me know what you think in the comments!
