Want to have great communication with the woman or man in your life?
First, agree on how to communicate. When discussing an important subject, it is helpful to be very clear about what you need.
For starters, here’s a bit of (perhaps unexpected) data: studies have shown that both men and women speak approximately 16,000 words a day. So just for the record, women do not talk more than men. It’s not how much they talk, it’s how. And it’s the expectations that come along with communicating that we need to be aware of.
A woman may say she needs to express her emotions and be listened to without problem solving. A man may say he needs to have a simple conversation without going into deep details.
