    schema:reviewBody ""Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus. The popular summation of the gender divide is given a lot of credence in the workplace. But the fact is that working women and men are far more alike than commonly realized - and managers who understand that can develop lasting, productive gender equity at work." "Playing to Strength: Leveraging Gender at Work describes how to build a more productive work environment based on what men and women have in common. Unlike other books on the subject, Playing to Strength is not an advice book for women employees, but a forward-thinking guide for managers and organizations who want to achieve the type of gender-balanced environment that brings out the best in both men and women." "Playing to Strength first looks at how the exaggerated focus on gender differences affects the workplace. It then provides a critical look at a number of current attempts to resolve gender-based conflict, promote fairness, and address gender segregation in the workplace - which efforts work and why, and which are likely a waste of time and money. The rest of the book offers detailed plans for building better gender balance at work, addressing such topics as gender-inclusive teams, mentoring programs, the role of middle managers, and employee resource groups."--Jacket." ;
