Gender relations in the workplace are as old as the human race.  We tend to take them at face value without understanding different perspectives and why they may exist.  This seminar examines socio-cultural norms and compares those to how we guide our behavior both around the same and different genders.  In order for leaders to be effective, they must understand how to work with these differences to communicate in a positive and meaningful way.  Also incumbent on a leader is the responsibility of ensuring the team feels communicated and included.  Differences between men and women are discussed in the following areas: communication, power structure, negotiation and leadership styles.
