A lack of or poor communication is often at the heart of conflict. Today we explore how this has a profound effect on gender inequality in business.
If you ever need a great movie or television scene to creatively illustrate a life lesson, you need look no further than Star Trek. You read that right. Star Trek. Everything you ever need to know about life, love, friendship, family, politics, whatever, can be learned from the annals of the various starships Enterprise and their respective ongoing missions. And today, I use an episode from Star Trek TNG as a metaphor for this issue of communication between men and women and the role it plays in gender inequality.
Radio Film School regular and Breaking the Glass co-producer Yolanda Cochran takes the helm of the discussion and as a segment producer engages in a conversation with her business partner Christina Kremer. A conversation that will give you an important perspective.
