    The Male Factor

    Okay , if you ever wondered why women face things in the workplace that make you want to pull your hair out; then you should read this book. Did you know that the way a woman dresses in the workplace can affect how a man reacts to her as a professional? Some men see womens work clothes as a camouflage. They think that women purposely try to avert coworkers attention to their physical attributes to attempt to cover up professional faults. Also the way a woman constructs her sentences can be taken the wrong way. Of course I'm sure not all male coworkers feel the same way but still this book is a handy one for your shelf if you are a female working professional. There is some great information to help you whether you are already in the workplace or are planning to enter it soon. Lots of great stuff to take into account.

    Consider the Male Factor

    The Male Factor is essential reading for today's working woman. When ordering please be sure to get the expanded edition which has faith-based wisdom and an added chapter with valuable information from experienced Christian working women.

    I found this book insightful and surprising! You will read about how men handle emotional situations in the workplace or what they interpret as an assault to their character. After reading some of the book I asked my husband for his opinion and he stated the book was spot on.

    I am not currently in the workforce yet I found this book to offer an inside look into men's attitudes that is invaluable. This book centers on the relationships between men and women in the workplace, however, the wisdom you gain extends beyond.
