More than 250 NEW North Central Texas members learned how men and women communicate differently at a networking luncheon Oct. 27, 2011, at the Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas.

Men and women differ not only in the way they communicate, but also in how they solve problems and earn respect , according to Connie Glaser, a nationally recognized expert on the gender communication gap in the workplace.

By exposing the common stereotypes and sharing effective communication strategies, Glaser said men and women can remove the barriers that prevent individual and organizational messages from being delivered accurately. Common verbal and nonverbal cues may lead to costly misunderstandings in the workplace, she noted.

The author of GenderTalk Works: 7 Steps for Cracking the Gender Code at Work encouraged NEW members to work to "understand their unique corporate culture, command the attention they want, and accept the credit they deserve.”

Among the companies represented at the event were The Coca-Cola Co., CROSSMARK, Deloitte, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Kraft Foods, The Kroger Co. and PepsiCo.
