Gender Specific Communication, the Real Deal
The development of this communication tool resulted after working for years with my hypnotherapy clients. Dr. John Gray, Mars/Venus relationship expert, also contributed to my work. Gender brain Science™ can enhance work relationships and communication with employees, thereby increasing productivity.
Can gender specific communication really improve productivity and work relationships? Yes, it can! But, it’s up to you, the employer, to learn the ideas behind gender science. This may seem a daunting task as science conjures up negative memories of our first science class.
The process is not a science lesson. It’s a lesson on how to make science work for you. Imagine the empowerment you feel when you express your words in a manner which supports his or her chemistry needs. The best part is all parties reap the benefits
Learning Gender Brain Science™ is an amazing breakthrough in work relationship compatibility. But, there is a lot to learn about it. To better understand this blog, please review archived blogs on my website.
When it comes to creating and maintaining meaningful employer/ employee relations, it’s all about brain chemistry and needs fulfillment. This science-based research effectively answers the question, “Can Gender specific communication improve productivity?” Read on to find out.
His & her brains are very similar in design and chemical make-up. You may ask, well, if they are so similar, why do they collide when it comes to getting the most out of my employees? Let’s take a closer look at this question.
Misperceptions, Misinterpretations, Needs Fulfillment
Collisions between people happen because the genders are thinking and talking to the opposite gender using the wrong language. In other words, men are speaking to women like they are men and vice versa. Stress and hormones also have a role in the communication process.
Technological advances have allowed researchers to see behavior at a physiologic level. Research has shown the slight difference in brain design and structure accounts for the gender specific reactions to stress. In simpler terms, men and women react differently to stress.
Research has shown male and female response to everyday job stress is directly related to balanced brain chemistry. Stress affects brain chemical levels which lead to misinterpretations and misperceptions which affect employer/employee relationships. That’s when collisions happen.
For a moment, reflect on situations which resulted in conflict with an employee. These conflicts happened for reasons you might have been unaware of until now. Imagine how you can use this new information so history does not repeat itself with current and future employees.
Basic Gender Differences and Needs
Let’s concede that acceptance and understanding gender differences can sometimes be challenging. Maintaining a good working relationship with an employee requires patience, understanding, and communication.
The fact remains, men and women are very different in their response to stress and in their needs. Men and women will always be different because these are innate traits we humans are born with. Learning the differences will result in a better understanding of your employees.
In response to stress, men tend to “check out” and seem aloof or apathetic. In fact, this is how he replenishes his stress hormone, testosterone. When your male employee is low in testosterone, his brain sends one message over and over, “make more testosterone.”
Women want to connect with others and talk about their problems. By engaging others and asking questions, she replenishes her stress hormone, oxytocin. The employer may see this as chit-chatting and ignoring her work. Actually this behavior helps to replenish her oxytocin.
Additionally, there are many words and phrases which are gender specific.
An employer can use words and phrases which help replenish his/her hormone levels naturally. Rephrasing and using gender specific words and phrases which replenish chemistry makes the chemistry work for you.
Appearing aloof does NOT mean he is ignoring responsibility and it certainly doesn’t mean he hates his job. He’s responding to innate male programming instruction coming from his brain to replenish testosterone and dopamine.
These examples reflect natural resistance to accepting gender different tendencies. Again, these are innate gender tendencies we must embrace, or you, the employer, will jump to unrealistic and false conclusions about the performance of your employees.
