In, “The Great Divide”, Sara Stewart, of the NY Post, provides an excellent report on how the inherent differences in men and women transfer over into business life.
She introduces us to Chris Flett, the author of, “What Men Don’t Tell Women About Business : Opening Up The Heavily Guarded Alpha Playbook”. He runs with the theory,
“that women mentor women to deal with men; men mentor men to bring in more business”,
which translates into women wasting time; meaning that women should be more like men.
She follows that up with a great piece from Lisa Robyn, author of “The Corporate Dominatrix: Six Roles to Play to Get Your Way at Work”, who reminds us that all business leaders should embrace their inner woman.
Can’t help but wonder why can’t we all just get along?
The article is full of great statistics and great ideas. We’re finally at a place where we can recognize that our differences are real, now we can spend the time examining how to get the best of both worlds.
