From the Inside Flap
"You cannot win without a workplace where women and men have equal opportunities, equal input, and equal power."
--Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company
So, what's a good guy to do?
Being determined, competitive, hungry for success, and able to lead winning teams have always been hallmarks of success in business. But now, at the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution and in the #MeToo era, that's no longer enough. We've learned that diversity equals dollars--companies irrefutably report improved performance when men and women lead together.
The Answers You've Been Looking For
WE is the straightforward playbook men, managers and leaders have been looking for to successfully work with women in our new economy. This is the everyday guide for good guys who want to win with talented people, regardless of gender. Keep it at your fingertips for concrete actions to take, the right things to say, and an expert woman's perspective on how to be the teammate and leader everyone wants to work with.
Men + Women = The Decisive Formula for Winning at Work
Guided by Anderson's unprecedented framework of four intentional behaviors, you can:
- Generate opportunities for yourself, your company, and the capable women you work with
- Recruit, retain, and advance women to create and work on the highest-performing teams
- Be the colleague, mentor, and sponsor who advances women and benefits equally from working with them
- Identify, interrupt, and address unconscious bias
- Rely on leading-edge gender-balanced practices during meetings, feedback conversations, and networking
The WE approach doesn't require money, a title, or company-wide adoption. It's about actions you can control and the game-changing playbook you need to excel with women in the highly competitive and increasingly diverse, inclusive real world.
From the Back Cover
Be the colleague, manager, leader, mentor and sponsor everyone wants to work with. Improve your results and win by working equally with women.
Why experts and business leaders recommend WE to you.
"Anderson delivers the evidence-based framework for frontline managers to senior executives who are serious about improving the workplace through a commitment to action and rewriting the gender playbook. By taking action together, WE can succeed in creating an equitable workplace where everyone wins."
―David G. Smith, PhD, Associate Professor of Sociology, National Security Affairs Department, United States Naval War College, Co-author of Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women
"WE offers men a vision of why and how they must get onboard and contribute to gender equality in ways that make the work all of us do count for even more. Engagement at the top has always been important, but this book shows us how to create engagement throughout an entire organization. I'll definitely be recommending this to organizations that know they need to change ― and to those that don't!"
―Curt Rice, PhD, Leader of Norway's Committee on Gender Balance and Diversity in Research
"Startup founders―65% of whom are male―can't afford to overlook the insights and contributions that women will make to the growth of their firms. Anderson provides a compelling, well-timed roadmap for entrepreneurs to leverage the strengths of a gender diverse team, work effectively together, and produce better outcomes for everyone."
―Wendy Guillies, President and CEO, Kauffman Foundation
"This book is a must-read for all male leaders looking for guidance on how to work more effectively with women. WE sheds light on the what to do versus the what not to do."
―Jeffery Tobias Halter, President of YWomen, corporate gender strategist, author

What’s been lacking until now is a “how-to” manual, primarily for men. This book provides fresh advice on taking bold action now to increase the economic participation and advancement of women in your company.
From recruiting talented leaders, (men often unintentionally weed–out superstar women before the first job interview) to encouraging and expanding the contributions of current female employees, (many men don’t even realize their own everyday behaviors that prevent their female colleagues from advancing) This manual provides very simple straightforward actions that all of us can take to quickly unlock a huge talent pool.
The book is so packed with great easy to implement advice, that I have copies for each of my daughters to give to their male colleagues and managers and help themselves in the process.
183 pages is the reading portion about the subject.
This book is easy to read and font is easy on the eyes.
This book is how men and women can win at work.
To win at work, there has to be culture changes within the work environment. Women need to be treated as equals as men. Women need to be made part of the workforce.
This book did really shed some light on some bias in the work places. I really hope that the author will write a book solely based on some bias. I didn’t notice some of the bias until I read this book.
It addressed what women want in the workplace and how it can be addressed.
I enjoyed reading this book. The book suggest you to read the book and go back again. I will be doing this to make sure that I can do my part to changing work culture.
