Breaking Through Bias: Communication Techniques for Women to Succeed at Work

To succeed in their chosen careers, women don’t need to wait for more female friendly workplaces, and they don’t need to behave more like men. Andie and Al persuasively argue the disparity in women’s and men’s career achievements is principally due to the prevalence of biases against women that flow from traditional gender stereotypes. They present sensible and effective communication techniques to overcome these biases so women can advance in their careers as far and as fast as their talents and hard work will take them.

Convincing Arguments Backed by Statistical Research

I had the pleasure of hearing Andie and her husband, Al, discuss their book, Breaking Through Bias, and how to apply their book to succeed in life. Andie and Al gave convincing arguments — backed by statistical research — that highlights the quantifiable tendencies that define communications between women and men. They were powerful speakers, and their book is great. In addition, Andie’s ability to connect to her listeners to offer suggestions and solve real life conflicts from her own personal experience as a successful woman was both encouraging and validating.
