5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons For Any Workplace That Mixes Genders, May 22 2000
By 
Paul Ramseth (White Bear Lake, Minnesota, U.S.A.) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Becoming Colleagues: Men and Women Serving Together in Faith (Paperback)
Many books have captured that fascinating differences between genders, but Carol Becker goes further and deeper. She explores the dynamics of mixed-gender teams, a little understood but frequently practiced work configuration in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. Becker's sensitivity to the many subtleties of inter-gender communication and her insightful understanding of the barriers to leadership for women are invaluable learnings to organizations in both sectors. The book was stocked with living examples and helpful suggestions, elements that heightened its relevancy and readabililty. I appreciated her primary target, that being nonprofit, mission-driven organizations; however, readers will quickly sense the transferability of her findings and recommendations to corporate America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Women and men creating a better model of working together, May 16 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Becoming Colleagues: Men and Women Serving Together in Faith (Paperback)
The book is good! Readable. But, better than that, it gives hope to women and men who work together and want to work together better.
Becker interviewed numerous 'mixed-gender' teams in ministry and then juxtaposed their stories against 'Nine Criteria'. The 'Criteria' may seem common sense but they are not. The case studies, observations and text are informative, provocative and instructional to women and men in ministry but hopefully also to the world at large.
Becker's Criteria gave me a quick snapshot of what mutual ministry can approach but also its hazards and challenges. I highly recommend this book.
