Martians to Appear Weekly
Newsletter volume 1 number 9
John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus is expanding his concept into another dimension television.
Starting next year, John's concept of differences in communication style between men and women will be featured in a weekly network situation comedy. His powerful insights on gender communication should make a fascinating series.
The last issue of The Interviewer's Edge featured a sampling of ideas from Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. John also relates his cross-gender communication observations to society at large. For example, he notes that when faced with frustration, women tend to talk, while men tend to take action. With that in mind, isn't it interesting to note that men make up 90% of America's prison population while women make up 90% of the population that is in therapy or counseling? That's something to think about next time you are in an angry or frustrating situation.
Now, what does all this have to do with interviewing and management? The basis of good management is clear communication. And the better we understand each other, the better our communication will be.
