John Gerzema and Michael D’Antonio – The Athena Doctrine


Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

I have to give the authors credit here – I disagreed with a fundamental principal of the book, and yet I still immensely enjoyed it. Loosely speaking, the Athena Doctrine is the theory that women and the men that think like woman will lead the way in to a brighter and better future where people work together for a common good.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I disagree with the classifications of which traits are masculine and which traits are feminine – they don’t match up with my own experience, and I think that assigning genders to character traits is a dangerous game. That said, the author’s did it fairly, asking survey respondents to assign traits to either one gender or another.

And they needed some way to do it, because I agree that the character traits that they opted to focus on are great attributes for a leader to have, whether they’re a CEO, a politician or an entrepreneur. The authors have backed their argument up with countless case studies from around the world, and it’s eloquently put by two talented writers. It’s just difficult to get in to a book if you’re not sure whether you agree with the central concept.

That said, I do think it’s well worth reading this if you’re a businessman who wants to change the world and the workplace for the better. Just take it with a pinch of salt (as you always should) and use this book for its true purpose – to inspire you to make the world a better place.
