Although men and women are different, we all want the same things from our work and relationships, which is to feel valued, to learn, and to grow. So why is it that after millennia of working and living we still don’t understand how each other relate to and operate in the world?

The answer is that men and women think differently. We process information and communicate differently. So even when we use the same words, we often don’t mean the same thing. Most of us have an intuitive sense of this but we don’t think about it much. We just carry on assuming the other gender means the same thing and interprets things the same way. We listen to the other gender from our own frame of reference. And we have all seen and experienced what kinds of misinterpretations that can lead to.

Barbara Annis is the CEO of Gender Intelligence Group (GIG) and a world-renowned expert on Gender, Diversity and Inclusive Leadership. Her insights and achievements have pioneered a transformational shift in mindsets for men and women across the globe on the importance of gender unity to organizational success. She is the author of several books on gender intelligence, including Same Words, Different Language – A Proven Guide for Creating Gender Intelligence at Work. Dr. Donese Worden is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor, research scientist, and global health educator who sees the enormous toll that stress in our relationships at home and at work takes on our physical, mental, and emotional health. Her training in both conventional and alternative medicine informs her whole body, mind, and spirit approach to empowering––and repowering–– her patients with the knowledge that enables them to make significant contributions to their own healing.

In this episode, Barbara Annis and Dr. Donese Worden share cutting-edge, scientific research into the different neurological frameworks and functions of the male and female brains and how these innate biological differences determine how we view the world, solve problems, make decisions, manage emotions, deal with stress, work in teams, and relate to and communicate with one another at home and at work. By increasing our gender intelligence, through understanding how and where we differ, we can improve the way we communicate with one and transform not only our relationships at home and at work, but also enhance our mental, physical, and emotional health.
