Gender differences in communication have been a source of fascination for many years. Popular books and videos by authors, such as Deborah Tannen (He Said, She Said) and Pat Heim (Invisible Rules: Men, Women, and Teams), have offered detailed portraits of how these differences may manifest themselves. Research looking at differences in brain structure and functioning between males and females indicates many biological differences exist and have an impact on human behavior. Yet, other writers, such as Mark Tripp, suggest these differences may be insignificant or nonexistent for some types of communication. This workshop explores some of the more popular views on “masculine” and “feminine” communication styles.
