Expanded Edition This expanded edition includes faith-based insights throughout, plus an added chapter with supportive application and wisdom from senior Christian women in the workplace. Millions of women gained eye-opening insights about the inner lives of men through Shaunti Feldhahn's best-selling bookFor Women Only. Now withThe Male Factor,Feldhahn brings her innovative research approach to the workplace to help women understand their male colleagues. Based on a nationwide survey and confidential interviews with thousands of men whose anonymity was guaranteed, her book reveals the private thoughts and attitudes that men rarely disclose but every woman needs to know. Never before has an author gotten inside the hearts and minds of men in the workplace-from CEOs to nonprofit managers, from lawyers to factory workers-to discover what they commonly think about women on the job, what their expected "rules" of the workplace are, what "managing emotion" means, and what factors improve or harm a man's respect for a female co-worker. Among the little-known but critical insightsThe Male Factorreveals are: o how men, with rare exception, view almost any emotional display as a sign that the person can no longer think clearly (as well as what men perceive as emotion in the first place) o why certain types of trendy attire may actually sabotage a woman's career o which little-known signals ensure that a man's perception of a strong female colleague is positive ("assertive and competent") instead of negative ("difficult") Even women who have navigated male-dominated work environments for years have expressed surprise at these and other revelations in the book. Some readers may find them challenging. YetThe Male Factordelivers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for women to understand how male bosses, colleagues, subordinates, and customers privately think, and why they react the way they do. These vital insights enable each woman to make informed decisions in her unique workplace situation. In this expanded Christian edition, Feldhahn builds on the same research and information as in the general-market edition, but speaks directly to the interests and questions of women of faith, whether their workplace is a part-time ministry or a Fortune 500 corporation. This edition ofThe Male Factoralso delivers invaluable advice from senior Christian women who have broad experience in dealing with these questions, understand and share the reader's values, and want to help other women achieve the best possible work relationships.
