You may remember Jeanne Worrick putting me in my place a few blog posts ago.
Well. She's at it again. She's using StumbleUpon to do research to support her crusade. (That's like using eBay to buy Prada.)
Here's her latest ridiculous statement:
This confirms what I have been saying: that women don't need to be taught how to read people, but men do.
In her comment on my previous post, Jeanne said:
Peter, you are part of a new generation that may have grown up seeing women more empowered and so more readily accept and respect what she has to say. If so, that is great.
That is true. I don't believe that there are many "professions" that a man has "an edge" on a woman or vice versa.
I also don't think that women are naturally more intuitive in assessing a person. Maybe if you paired up 100 women vs 100 men, women are more intuitive. But, to make the blanket statement that ALL men need to learn it and NO women need to learn it, seems a bit extreme.
Sorry, Jeannne. I still don't see the case for a sales course tailored only to women.
So, Rick and Dave... When is OMG (Recently named to the Inc 5000) going to step up and dig into those tens of thousands of assessments they've given to determine whether men have different sales issues than women?
