Gender balance is important in the workplace—critical, in fact. That’s what the numbers show and common sense suggests it as well. But, we don’t seem to be getting any closer to achieving this. Why not? Why are men and women in business at odds?
I’ve spent a lot of time analyzing how men and women lead in a business environment. Newsflash! They do it ENTIRELY differently. Men lead with PSP; women lead with CUE. I explain this further in this video.
Basically, men built a system for business that works for them—then women came along and also wanted to lead in our own lives. The systems men built (The Men’s Code) don’t work well for women. Women are frustrated and want to change those systems. Men are frustrated that women want to change something that works well for men. Both sides are stubbornly sure they are right and the other side is wrong. Because that kind of digging in your heels works-ever! Of course this doesn’t work in business.
I’m looking at a way to resolve this. If we simple take the Men’s Code AND The Women’s Code and put them together, we arrive at the New Business Code. I’d like you to watch this video to learn more about this big idea of mine, then please take the time to comment below. I’d really welcome your input.
