Earlier this week, we posted an interview with John Gray, whose newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," examines how men and women could better understand each other in the workplace. Here are the highlights.
John Gray and Barbara Annis' newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," addresses the false assumptions and miscommunication between men and women, both in the workplace and at home.
When it comes to multi-tasking work obligations and maintaining some semblance of a social life, have you ever found yourself mixing business with pleasure? If so, then we’d love for you to comment below on how you accomplished this without upsetting the balance of your love life. Here are four ground rules you and your significant other can follow so the events of the evening do not creep into your bedroom as an unwanted bedfellow. It is not uncommon today to grab drinks after work with a prospective client before heading out for dinner with your date. However, what is the best way to handle this scenario when your date who also happens to be your business partner or colleague also has a mutual interest in meeting your prospective client so he or she too can use the opportunity to network. 1. Whoever Arranges the Meet-Up is in Charge
People have been debating whether or not men and women can be "just friends" for years. In the movies when you have a best friend of the opposite sex (that is heterosexual) your story line can only end two ways: in eternal love or in heartbreak.
Sometimes it seems like the world would be a much happier and altogether easier place if boys could just read our minds. They would finally understand the importance of watching TV dramas and why getting ready in under 30 minutes is just not going to happen.
It’s amazing how some people are natural self promoters in the workplace. Normally men are more apt to promote themselves then women. That’s not to say women don’t want promotion, the majority of them just don’t speak up. John Gray’s, author of Mars Venus, point of view is clear in listing the differences on how Martians and Venusians promote themselves.

Our species is living longer, getting married later, and having children a decade (or more) later than prior generations. Due to technological innovations and advances in science and medicine, we are improving our health and as a consequence, prolonging our lives. What this means according to scientists, is that middle age is coming on later. So that by 2050, 52 years of age will be considered middle age, instead of 40 years of age, which was considered middle age in 2000.
Everyone knows that men and women are really different. We think differently and act differently because we are wired differently. I mean look at our brains and genitals: they are just plain different. Right? Wrong.
If "Fifty Shades of Grey" teaches us anything (other than that redundancy-filled fan fiction can get you on a best-seller list, so long as it's erotic), it's that men really love power.
The popularity of "Fifty Shades Of Grey" has opened up a number of issues regarding BDSM, feminism and sexual power dynamics. More than the book's reach, the conversations have begun about exactly how many people are into this kind of sex and why they enjoy it. We're a strange animal.
The problem with buying into common untruths In high-powered corporate jobs, women experience greater success with more masculine energy. The opposite is true in love. When women bring an abundance of masculine energy to love, they have a difficult time finding true and lasting love with a masculine man.
What would happen if men and women switched gender roles, so that men were the ones getting hit on in the bar and spending their Saturdays obsessively shopping, and women were the ones who had to pay cover, use cheesy pickup lines and leave the toilet seat up?
