Men have always had the notoriety of (for the most part) being avid go-getters who were eager to climb the corporate or career ladder. In fact, their social or financial status has always been a significant part of who they ARE and whom they and we define them as.

But, according to recent research, men are committing some (office) “crimes” that may be sabotaging their success.

Studies suggest that men don’t listen well, and listening is among one of the most important attributes and qualifications he can bring to the job. And, experts note that his other two success staggering mistakes include failure to make eye contact (especially with female bosses, supervisors, and colleagues), and maintaining a slovenly and unkempt work/desk space and appearance.

Professionals point out that in a mixed (gender) environment, where men MUST work and/or answer to women, they make the mistake of underestimating the power of listening, and non-verbal communication such as body language and appearance. In fact, they note, that men are often “ignorant’ about just how much impact these three areas have on female counterparts and how “easily” it can affect their success. Women, they note, consider poor listening skills and poor grooming skills a sign of lack of respect. Plus, they interpret “improper” posture, and body language as “offensive” and a good reason to prevent promotion.
