Do men really communicate differently than women?

A lot has been written and said about communication differences between men and women: "Men cannot listen, women talk too much. Women are not straightforward; men say it like it is. Men can make a decision, women keep on talking. Women understand feelings, men don't etc. etc..."

Popular literature such as Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus underpins this popular belief that men and women simply are different, due to different genetic material/brains/evolution.

The advantage of this line of thinking is that is provides easy explanations to some of the differences you might observe in your daily life. The flipside is that it is a very stereotypical way of looking at men and women, which puts men and women in boxes, and that the findings are not always based on thorough scientific evidence.

In this workshop we focus on developing effective communication for men and women, based on a balanced approach. Topics that are addressed:

  • Effective communications by creating connections
  • Report style versus Rapport style
  • Sensitivity to gender
  • Using masculine and feminine energy
  • Flexing your personal style


What clients are saying

“Those who attended commented in particular on the way you were able to cover a lot of serious, well-researched content but present it with humor and a light touch – you clearly know the subject inside out but there was nothing dry or ‘academic’ the session!” 
“We appreciated your open style and your ability to engage the audience in a discussion / conversation – despite the large size of the group.”
“We also had a lot of good comments about the ‘tricks and tips’ that you provided on how to flex your style.”
