What is included with this book?


Men and women DO have unique communication styles that don't always mesh well. Code Switching offers a way of "reaching across the aisle" to open the lines of communication. It helps both women and men creak the gender code and speak in common terms, so work gets done, conflict gets resolved, and mutual understanding and respect prevail ... in the workplace and beyond.
