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.
