There are more women CEOs: 12.6 percent of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women (up from 2.4 percent in 2008). Collaboration is the key for successful workplace managers. Fewer workplace-related ailments arise because work stresses are a thing of the past. Most people are working in careers not just jobs where they feel encouraged and welcomed; they learn, produce, and contribute more than years ago. Men and women work side by side, mentoring each other so they and their company succeed. Businesses regularly offer workshops on how to listen. Women and men are more self-aware of their choices in how they communicate with each other.
How is this all possible? Code Switching is the answer. It became the rage 10 years ago. Women wanted to better themselves and their communication in the workplace. They used their code-switching skills to improve communication with their male colleagues. Women were code switching and men were listening. They still are, to this day. Women know how to value their own communication style and when to use it to get across a message and achieve their goals. They know how and when to use different communication styles to suit their needs.
