This training often runs counter to the communication skills that are expected and rewarded in the workplace. If you know women who have waited for someone to notice they’ve done a good job or whose deferential nature has kept them from advancement, you have witnessed this dichotomy in action.
Linguistic research has unveiled a wealth of information for women working with men. Deborah Tannen, Robin Lakoff and other linguists have studied how language patterns are formed at a very young age and how they grow to differ for the sexes. These differences, hierarchical communication for men and relational communication for women, are the basis for much of the misunderstandings and lack of value of women’s contributions in the workplace. Understanding these potential pitfalls and leveraging our strengths as women in relational communication techniques can ensure our visibility, power and effectiveness in the workplace.

What’s Most Important? is the title of my latest book. It is the result of decades of formal and informal research and personal experimentation. I have categorized the results of this research into five factors that are of crucial importance to modern individuals and societies. MORE >I will demonstrate how we can use these five survival strategies as game-changing forces in our personal lives, families, vocations, organizations and at all government levels.
For example, what if all parents modeled and taught their children the fundamentals of physical health, mental health, financial security, used proven problem-solving and critical thinking skills and acted responsibly to others, the environment and especially to themselves?
