Gender Difference #1: Results vs. Relationships
Women tend to be more relationship-oriented. Conversely, men tend to be more results-oriented, meaning they will likely focus more on the task instead of the people involved. As such, men talk to give information, whereas women talk to gain information. There is an inherent advantage in the women’s style of communication here. Because women tend to collect information, they have more information in their arsenal. However, asking too many questions can make you seem unsure and reduce the level of confidence that people have in your leadership abilities.
