The "glass ceiling" of communication
Is spoken of the "glass ceiling", which makes it difficult for women in Company To make a career, the causes are usually seen essentially in the three points:
- Power games and rope teams of the men, which make it difficult for the women.
- Lack or inadequate aggressiveness of women.
- The "K" question (child or career) and the associated care options.
Gender Communication - what is it about?
Often, the topic of "gender communication" is seldom paid attention to. In contrast, not only is the reaction of my interlocutors, but especially of coachees or trainees, as soon as I just touch on the subject:
They are immediately intensified in the discussion, want to know more and learn, bring examples and immediately begin to relate to their everyday life.
Gender gap in the example
I would now like to introduce to you, dear readers, a classic example of how the "glass ceiling" is born out of the gender-specific form of communication. Let's take a deeper look at the example of John and Sonja together. Sonjas and John's department headed for an employee who had to solve a special task. Johannes was given the task long before Sonja showed her interest. John had at once decided to consider whether he could and would have everything to do the job, and to get support from Sonja.
Sonja had first thoroughly examined whether she felt herself able to cope with the delightful task before she had given her boss a positive feedback. The chief had interpreted Sonja's hesitation as a lack of enthusiasm and assigned Johannes the task, because his immediate engagement had convinced him.
The unconscious behavior patterns
This incident shows very impressively a few of the underlying, classical female or classical male, mostly unconscious behavioral and thought patterns that are responsible for the recurring and often cited failure of the so-called "glass ceiling".
