John’s newest book is titled, Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business. Work with Me teaches us how to achieve a more comfortable and productive work environment. John co-authored the book with Barbara Annis, a global expert on Gender Intelligence whose teachings and trainings have transformed the culture of numerous Fortune 500 companies and international governments.
Revealed for the first time in Work with Me are the Eight Gender Blind Spots, the leading false assumptions that create problems between men and women at work and at home. These blind spots were discovered using science, corporate case studies and the gender-based research from consulting firms and leading universities. John and Barabara also used the results from a very candid survey of over 100,000 men and women executives in Fortune 500 companies.
Work with Me details the biological and social influences that compel men and women to think and act as they do. It also offers clear solutions to help men and women understand how each gender communicates, solves problems, makes decisions, resolves conflict, leads others, and deals with stress.
