When it comes to helping women and men succeed we've all heard that we need to have diversity in the workplace, however, are we missing the bigger picture on how to create inclusive workplaces that can promote the strengths of both men and women? 

Facilitator, author, subject matter expert, and CEO of The Heim group is here to give us insight into the playbook that will help change how women (and men) win at the game of business.

We’ll explore:

The fact is that business has been run overwhelmingly by men until only recently. Is there gamesmanship that causes conflict between genders and creates a less engaged workforce for organizations? 

  • How do we help more women and organizations win in the game of business?
  • Do men and women approach business differently?
  • What is the playing field for women, and what are the strategies to win?
  • We're promoting women to the top but now what? How can we equip them to thrive with both men and women? 
  • Interview with Tammy Hughes:

    You’ll discover: 

  • Based on global research, you'll learn more about the invisible gender playbook in business that hinders most women and organizations from reaching their full success. 
  • Men operate on a hierarchy structure vs. the flat structure that women use. 
  • Each gender is a culture unto itself, raised with basic rules of conduct "instinctively" known to all adult members of that gender. Consequently, what seems natural to one gender culture can seem mysterious and baffling to the other.
  •  Learn how to improve workplace communication between men and women instead of placing the blame on either gender.
  • Why women typically are the least supportive of other women in a position of power?
  • And so much more!

  • You cannot manage what you do not see, and you cannot manage what you do not understand. Tammy Hughes

  • When you create awareness opportunities like we do its critical that it be balanced and that it's about helping men understand the female culture and women understand the male culture without trying to promote or change a culture at the expense of another one. Tammy Hughes

  • It has to start at the top, the only way to shift an organization the only way to move a needle is for leaders to embrace gender differences and unconscious biases that then models it for the entire organization.

  • Companies are great at hiring diversity mixes but mixes don't organically work well together you have to help them mix. Tammy Hughes
