You’ve thought about it haven’t you? What would it be like? Could I? Would I? I could get in such big trouble…..but that is part of what makes it so exciting; the fact that it is so naughty. I would like to try it….just once, okay maybe twice!

Well, if these are some of the thoughts you’ve had, you are going to learn in this article how to make sex work for you in business. How to get promoted, close the deal and get that raise, are some of the benefits that will come from your sexual prowess. That is correct, the more effective you are at communicating with and building relationships with members of the opposite sex the more successful you will be in your professional career. (What did you think I was talking about?)

Every day you work with men and women in your office, as your suppliers, vendors, clients, bosses and team mates. Do we work together well? Yes, and no. We all step on each other’s toes by saying things that we shouldn’t. However, it is a bigger problem between men and women. Why? Because, at the most basic level, at the molecular level, we are different. We have different views of the world and therefore different ways of approaching issues and solutions. This is not a bad thing….in fact, it is a good thing; if we know how to take advantage of it. The problem is that men don’t know how women think and women don’t know how men think. By being on different pages of communication and thinking processes we end up losing sales, losing negotiations, not getting the promotion we wanted or just not forming a team as strong an effective as it should be.

Sexual Adaptation

In order to adapt….to get along with “them” in a more effective manner we have to start with the basics.

Men: Understand that women are not men, nor should they be. It is not up to them to adapt to your rude or crude behavior. Be polite, be respectful, be on your best behavior. What is funny and non-offensive to us, may be very insulting to the women folk.

Women: Please be brief and to the point. Men, okay most men, like to speak in bullets not paragraphs and don’t need all the editorializing. Please give us the facts in a logical manner and then let us ask the questions we need if we feel we want more information. Remember Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek television series? No? Okay, maybe you are a little young for that. Please You Tube Mr. Spock and watch him. This is how we think. Correction, this is how we like to think we think and communicate. The reality is we are not near that smart and logical, but we believe we are. Please humor us.

Men: They are not a tool in your belt, they are actually people with feelings. Fellas, I know in business you are trying to be very efficient and effective. This is wonderful for you and for may be your Mr. Spock counterparts, but most women never heard Star Trek or hated it when it was on. Build the relationship with the women you interact with in business. Don’t look at them as a tool: a means to an end. We men do that with each other all the time, and don’t even think about it. In fact, a lot of us prefer it. Women don’t. Take the time to get to know them. Yes, that means about their kids, pets, interests and favorite color sweater. Okay, I am getting carried away with the sweater but you get the point.

Women: We are simple creatures. Please give us the up front agenda when we speak. Remember KISS? (Keep It Simple Stupid) Well, that is the best way to communicate with men. Our high testosterone, ADHD attention span means we need to know the purpose of our conversation before we get two sentences into it. Give me a reason to want to not only speak with you but KEEP speaking with you. Outline the purpose of the conversation we are about to have and you will keep me focused and dialed in to you and all you have to stay.

Okay, so maybe I am over exaggerating each other’s issues. Then again, maybe I am not. The key thing to remember is adapt. Respect for our sexual counterparts means being aware that we think and process information differently. The more we keep this in mind and act accordingly, the better we will all get along.

I have to go now and have a conversation with my wife. Yikes! Let me re-read what I just wrote.
