MAN-DRAMA – 5 Strategies for Women Dealing With the Male Ego

Women have been unfairly branded in pop-culture as “Drama Queens.” Historically, men have created much more drama than women – drama that has left the Big 3 E’s – the Economy, Ethics and the Environment in peril. Today, women hold more power politically and economically than at any point in history and it will be up to women to protect men in this new world order. They will need to teach men how to survive and thrive in a society that puts more and more value on feminine characteristics where unchecked masculinity will be seen as a liability. In this hilariously entertaining look at dealing with the male energy in your life, Eric Stephenson combines humor and research to deal with his seven caricature male archetypes: The Peacock, The CEO, The Mamas Boy, The Bad Boy, The Feeler, The Politician and The Jock. Learn to identify and manage the male energy in your life- and who is causing the real drama out in the world.
