I had the benefit of participating in a GenderSpeak workshop led by Tammy Hughes for my employer and it was a highlight of my work year! Tammy’s insight into the different “lenses” that each of us wears based on our experiences as men or women was incredibly insightful and has helped me reflect not only on my own communication style but also how I can be more empathetic and effective as a leader in my organization.

I was fortunate to hear Tammy Hughes speak at a Kaiser Permanente Women in Medicine symposium for women in leadership. She spoke about the different lenses worn by men and women, the ingrained differences in behavior and feedback that differ by gender, and the implications this has in working together successfully. That 1 woman acting like a man is not diversity. That 2 women in a board room full of men are unlikely to sit near each other and collaborate, it takes 3. What pearls she dropped, over and over and over again. When I bragged about the experience on social media, many accomplished women shared that they had been fortunate enough to hear Tammy and Pat Heim speak, and that they were inspired by their teaching. I have heard many talks for women in leadership, and this was the cream of the crop for me.

Tammy Hughes was a guest speaker at NCUA last month and I just wanted to say that she was fantastic. It was an eye-opening seminar and it’s completely changed my perspective.

Why Women Have Such Intense Relationships

by Pat Heim, Ph.D.

While co-writing my book In the Company of Women, Indirect Aggression Among Women: Why We Hurt Each Other and How to Stop (Tarcher, 2001) my co-authors and I received a soon to be published study about stress and women. Suddenly everything made sense.

Commotion about Promotions

by Susan Murphy, Ph.D., M.B.A.

"I'm so disappointed I didn't get the promotion to Department Manager!" exclaims Kay, "He should have known I wanted it!" When Kay's manager was promoted to Vice President, his former position had been posted. Kay didn't apply; she assumed her manager knew she wanted it.

Effectively Managing Conflict?

by Serge Lashutka, M.A., M.B.A.

Recently I met with the top team of a family owned furniture manufacturing company to discuss teambuilding. The top team of 12 people is half male and half female. However, more than half the team members are related to the husband and wife who started the company.

The Golden Rule Has Lost Its Shimmer

by Tammy Hughes

When I'm conducting workshops, participants will occasionally ask, "Wouldn't all of this diversity training be unnecessary if we all just started practicing the golden rule?" Great question… so let's explore!
