NEW YORK—March 6, 2018—Morgan James’s new release, The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide by Dr. Shawn Andrews, explains the differences in gender culture that often hinder a woman’s impact in the workplace. An expert in the fields of diversity and organizational leadership, Dr. Andrews provides a practical guide for men, women, and organizations to acknowledge and overcome the barriers women face in business.
Women make up more than half of the U.S. workforce, yet nearly every major corporation is led by a man. Women are statistically more educated than men, and thus just as qualified for these roles, and yet there is still a gender gap. The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide examines the reasons why more women are not found in positions of leadership within the various organizations. From differences in leadership style to societal stereotypes, to gender bias and varying levels of emotional intelligence, Andrews provides an in-depth look at gender equality in the business world.
The fight for gender equality and women’s rights has come a long way in the last century, but there is still so much progress to be made. In The Power of Perception, Dr. Andrews offers personal stories of women’s journeys and real life examples, as well as sharing her own research and experience. From there she offers practical steps that organizations can take to close the gender gap and begin to recognize women for their contribution and leadership potential in the workplace.
The disparity in corporate leadership will never be balanced until the perception of women in the workplace is shifted to recognize the force that they truly are. Dr. Shawn Andrews leads the way and paves the path to true equality in The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide.
