Managerial Communications – Written Assignment 4 Workplace communication contributes to the overall success or failure of any business, regardless of the industry. There are many gender differences between men and women that affect the efficacy of communication and the delivery of information across projects, teams, or entire organizations. These differences can drastically improve or diminish the positive gains of a business, the employee moral within a section, or the willingness for employees to bring up issues or concerns they may have. Some key differences in gender specific communication include the ability to recognize and respond to non-verbal communication, the capacity to portray a managerial or command presence, and the aptitude to incorporate quality listening skills into management practice patterns. While there is an enormous gender gap in leadership communication, there are many attributes possessed by men and women that influence growth and change in the workplace. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of both genders can allow leaders to develop in areas that benefit their organization. According to Dr. Carol Gorman, men and women have distinct differences in social dexterity in their recognition of subtle non-verbal communication or body language (Carol Kinsey Gorman, 2016). The skill to correctly distinguish differences in non-verbal communication can aid in early detection of personal issues that may affect workplace performance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
