Peter Polk, Retired Healthcare Executive
Governor’s Task Force on Aging-Mature Worker InitiativePresenting:  Conversational Rituals

How can we overcome frustrations and avoid misunderstandings that result from gender differences in conversational style?  When conversational rituals are not understood, we tend to interpret them literally = misinterpreting the speaker’s intentions and abilities.  In every office, no matter what part of the world, and no matter what kind of business, there’s one activity without which no work could ever get done …… Talking.  In any job search, effective talking at an interview can result from knowing conversational style to apply whether the interviewer is a man or woman.
