Each of us enters the workplace not only as a human being, but as a woman or a man.  Each workday is a meeting of gender-different styles, modes of operating, and leadership skills.  The corporation that utilizes the differences between men and women is the corporation that discovers significant competitive advantage. The corporation that helps both genders understand each other has committed itself to maximum success.

This new keynote, like the new book, provides leading edge gender-brain research in a humorous, highly accessible presentation.  Its practical application focuses on executive and managerial leadership, then extends to all levels of workplace operation.  Through the use of DVD, lecture, practical tools, anecdotes, and interactive discussion, leadership and workplace issues are understood at points of connection between how women and men think.

New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian (Leading Partners) is a pioneer in the field of gender science.  In his presentations, Michael always provides a balanced, gender-positive approach.  At the end of this presentation, both women and men feel enlightened by male/female brain difference.

Four Special Features in this Presentation:

*Powerful technology and tools from new brain sciences.  Michael shows PET and SPECT scans, and presents other brain science tools, by which audiences can look into the brains of men and women.

*Ready to use, field-tested, and practical GenderTools.  Michael provides practical tools by which corporate leaders can increase both their personal comfort and competitive edge as women and men.

*Success Data from Fortune 500 corporations.  Michael presents quantitative success data from corporations the authors have worked with, including IBM, Brooks Sports, Deloitte & Touche, and many others, where brain-based gender trainings have led to millions of dollars of increased bottom line.

*Implications for the Home Front.  Michael weaves relationship and parenting issues into this leadership presentation whenever requested, since male/female brain differences impact not only corporate leadership, but important aspects of relationships, partnerships, marriages, and the raising of boys and girls.

At an instinctual level, corporate culture has sensed the importance of male/female difference Michael Gurian is a speaker at conventionstraining for a long time. Simultaneously, we in business tend to prefer science to art, and many of popular culture's suggestions regarding women and men have felt more like artful opinion than essential science.   Fortunately, now, things have changed.  Corporate leaders now have access to secrets of leadership from actual brain science.  PET scans and MRI's of men's and women's brains are useful training tools, easy to look at, powerful and compelling.  They provide access to the cutting edge science which corporations need in order to harness the very useful differences between women and men.  They are useful in amazing ways to today's leaders, both women and men. Each of us enters the workplace not only as a human being, but as a woman or a man.  Each workday (like in every family) is a meeting of gender-different styles, modes of operating, and leadership skills.  The corporation that utilizes the differences between women and men is the corporation that discovers significant competitive advantage.  The corporation that helps its women and men understand each other has committed itself to maximum success.
