Women and men experience the world differently-not only do they see things differently, but they see different things. Men tend to have a bottom-line, sharply focused, linear way of thinking that excludes any role for emotion or empathy. Women are more empathetic, more aware of the critical impact of interpersonal factors both within and without the organization. Both perspectives are important, but at the moment organizations only reward traditionally male skills and points of view. Based on extensive research and workplace experience, The Female Vision demonstrates that what women women perceive in organizations and beyond that goes unnoticed and unrewarded is exactly what so many companies needs to succeed. Helgesen and Johnson delve deeply into the stories of a number of women whose vision improved their companies-although often they had to struggle not only against unresponsive organizations, peers, or others, but also against their own personal fears. They show how companies can can create environments that welcome and encourage women to share what they notice, to the benefit not only of the women themselves but also, perhaps ironically, to the all-important bottom line.
