Publisher's Summary

Each of us enters the workplace not only as a human being, but as a woman or man, Leadership and the Sexes links the actual science of male/female brain differences to every aspect of business. Written by the New York Times best-selling author and gender expert Michael Gurian and acclaimed workplace gender consultant Barbara Annis, this groundbreaking audio weaves brain science and gender studies with real life examples from business leaders to provide a new vision of gender diversity.

Leadership and the Sexes presents brain science tools with which listeners can look into the brains of men and women to understand themselves and one another. Provided are five GenderTools, which can be used immediately in executive, management, design and marketing teams. The gender science presented here has been used successfully by such diverse corporations as IBM, Nissan, Proctor & Gamble, Deloitte & Touche, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Brooks Sports, and many others. This gender science helps leaders increase their organization's competitive edge, profits, and bottom line by:

  • Increasing gender intelligence between men and women.
  • Discovering new ways to supervise, negotiate, and manage.
  • Revising male/female relationships to meet the demands of the global economy
  • Understanding how to use gender science to sell and market products and services.

    The corporation that utilized the authentic differences between men and women is the organization that discovers significant competitive advantage. The company or firm that helps women and men understand each other discovers maximum success.

      "meh"

      The narration style did not fit the material, for me, and made it hard to listen to. The pace was very slow. Either the narrator, or the prose, or both, gave the book a patronizing tone.

      The material was very repetitive. The book is organized as a workshop for executives and their management teams, which was not clear from the description. Not the best format for an audiobook. Frequent references to the authors' workshops and other books made it feel a bit like an ad, too.

      Lastly, the book was not as gender balanced as I hoped/expected. Though it pays lip service to balanced advice, I found it to be much more about how men can understand/accomodate/benefit from women's "brain differences" than vice versa. Perhaps this is understandable but, I would have preferred a better balance. (And I'm coming at this from the female side of the equation).

      "Didn't get much good information from this"

      The writing didn't translate well to audio book and I found it difficult to listen to. It had some decent information, but nothing groundbreaking.

      "A very long corporate brochure"

      There is about 30 minutes of useful information, which one might get from shorter articles on the subject online. The bulk of the content is the usual corporate lingo with bland statements and outdated management advice. Rest is common sense. There is very little practical information.

      "Great Introduction"

      Gurian and Annis have provided a very practical introduction to the neuroscience related to differentials in male/female behavior. This book provides enough technical background to orient the reader and an abundance of practical management help and insight. Well read, well wirten, and well organized. There is ample insight for every listener to immediately apply to the work place.
