Format: Paperback
Working in a male dominated enironment I found this book useful and empowering. After reading the book I feel I communicate with men more effectively, directly and positively. The book takes a modern approach to solving the communication differences between men and women. It is a must have for every business woman

Brown and Nelson offer solid communication methods that work both in the corporate world and for smaller business owners. My wife and I run a small business and work together closely. Our primary communication with our contractors is electronic, so these suggestions have proved invaluable! Just a few different "code-switching" words in our emails or on the phone, based on gender, have really been effective. And it's helped with our personal communication style too. Thanks! Jimmie and Kathy Kelly, Personnel Profiles, Inc.

Format: Paperback
CODE SWITCHING: HOW TO TALK SO MEN WILL LISTEN offers a method of opening communication lines between the genders, presenting a 'gender code' and common conflicts and outlining strategies based on examples and anecdotes showing how others have used these practices to break stereotypes. From underlying signals sent by common phrases ("are you wearing that?") to negotiating strategies and underlying tensions, CODE SWITCHING is a pick any general lending library will want.

Format: Paperback
Code Switching: how to talk so men will listen, is a terrific read for both men and women. Who knew that parents often speak to babies before they are even born using gender specific language and gestures? This book is full of tips and stories of how communication can evolve or devolve between men and women at work and at home. This information is invaluable for both men and women, especially now that women make up almost half of the workforce. Interpersonal relationships in the workplace can increase or decrease productivity and impact the bottom line, so now more than ever managers and leaders need to know how men and women communicate differently and how to recognize and stop non-productive behaviors at work. Informative and entertaining!
