Overview


Work With Me is the timely collaboration of two of the world’s foremost authorities on gender relations. Barbara Annis, world-renowned expert on gender issues in the workplace, and John Gray, author of the number one relationship book of all time, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, team up to resolve the most stressful and confusing challenges facing men and women at work. Annis and Gray reveal, for the first time, survey results of over 100,000 in-depth interviews of men and women executives in over 60 Fortune 500 companies. Readers will discover the Eight Gender Blind Spots, the false assumptions and opinions men and women have of each other, and in many ways, believe of themselves. Through research, science, and stories, Annis and Gray expose the blind spots that cause our misunderstandings, miscommunications, mistrust, resentment, and frustrations at work. Readers will discover the biology and social influences that compel men and women to think and act as they do, and direct how they communicate, solve problems, make decisions, resolve conflict, lead others, and deal with stress, enabling them to achieve greater success and satisfaction in their professional and personal lives. Work With Me is the definitive work-life relational guide, filled with "ah-ha!" moments and discoveries that will remove the blind spots and enable men and women to work and succeed together.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this must-read, Annis (an expert on workplace gender issues and chair of the women’s leadership board at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government) and relationship expert Gray (author of the bestseller Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus) examine how and why men and women think differently at work, and what we can do about it. As the authors write, “In pursuit of gender sameness, we’ve painted ourselves into a corner.” By exposing and eliminating our blind spots, Annis and Gray argue, we can improve our gender intelligence and therefore our individual and organizational effectiveness. In the first section, the authors examine eight gender blind spots that emerged from their own research, and that are supported by data and research from outside institutions. The blind spots are humorous, but the examples of how we misinterpret each other will hit home. Compelling stories from individuals bring the data to life, and facts on gender are included throughout. Even more useful is the book’s second section, which offers examples of gender intelligence at work, plus practical advice on how to build trust and improve communications. Pragmatic and timely, this joint offering by two complementary experts—one from Mars and one from Venus—promises to be a game changer. Agent: Carol Mann, Carol Mann Agency. (May)

    This book contains a lot of good information and ideas, with support from a vast array of personal observations, surveys, and scientific data. It seemed that the authors had about 125 pages of data to support their ideas and needed to get the book to 250 pages. If/As you read this book you will see the same concepts and ideas are repeated again and again as you finish the last half of the book.
    The book is worth the time to read. Many of the ideas and concepts move beyond the work place and can help you understand the motivations of the sexes in a variety of applications.
