Jean Hollands is introducing her new book, Same Game Different Rules. Her company, GLC, addresses the obstacle that continues to thwart many a talented woman’s ambition—The “Bully Broad” factor.

Unfortunately, many of these exceptional women are discovering, too late, that the very qualities that propelled them up the corporate ladder can just as easily ruin them in today’s collaborative business culture.

Too often, the casualities of our high-tech, high-anxiety computer revolution are the marriages and relationships of those closest to it. Ironically, as computers speed communications between nations and corporations, the people who work with computers find themselves victims of the Silicon Syndrome—a crippling lack of communication with their non-technical mates. Jean Hollands, the author, has observed first-hand and treated many symptoms of the Silicon Syndrome: alcoholism, depression, sexual disorders, obesity, family breakdown, emotional burnout and others. Here she offers specific solutions to couples facing stress which threatens to pull them apart. And her advice is equally important for many others in high-tech relationships. Based on her personal experiences working with thousands in Silicon Valley, she provides a workable, interactive program of reconcilliation rather than resentment, negotiation rather than negativism. This book is intended to help today’s couples reunite and work together again to fulfill their goals.
