There seems to be some sort of unwritten rule that it’s OK to give a woman career advice and personal feedback, whereas it’s unheard of to do the same to men. Recently, research was published that women tend to get personal critiques in their performance reviews, and men tend to get constructive feedback.
If you, like me, have ever sat through a meeting with mainly women you will almost certainly have wondered when they were going to stop talking and get down to action. Whereas men seem to do first, women seem to take time to get into action. Have you ever noticed that?
