Reviews the relatively slow change in attitudes about the characteristics required in management, and explores gender differences in management style. Reports on research to investigate how both “typical” and “good” managers are perceived in terms of characteristics related to masculinity and feminity. Findings suggest that, although managers in general are rated high in masculine characteristics, good managers are rated high both in masculine and feminine characteristics. Discusses results in the context of trends in organizations.
