The original Hite Report became a legend that transformed our views on sexual behavior in society. Yet every day, we enter a place where no-one knows what the sexual rules are. A place where we spend more time, with more people of the opposite sex than in any other part of our lives. The workplace. Applying the revolutionary thinking of the original reports, combined with groundbreaking new research, Sex and Business writes the rules for how men and women can work together to create a new and vital force for success. Above all, it addresses the questions and dilemmas that almost every one of us has faced: What are your motives at work - can you be who you really are? How do you gain respect at work without conforming to tired male and female cliches? Can colleagues of the opposite sex be friends without everyone assuming there's something 'going on' between them? What if they are genuinely attracted to each other? Or even fall in love? Is this really a problem for the company? Where does friendliness stop and sexual harassment begin? People are the fundamental units of any business. Sex & Business releases the dynamic energy that men and women, working together, bring to the company. It offers you the opportunity to redesign your mental software, and pioneer a new workscape. You will find this book changes your life - immediately and profoundly. Read it. Don't miss it.
