Abstract

An examination of styles of management with comparisons of 124 female and 95 male managers. Shows that there are two defined parts of leadership behaviour. Investigates the findings of a Leader Behaviour Questionnaire on management styles and shows the six major differences between genders. Concludes that more research is needed to explore and confirm the study results, which at present show that women, rather than men, managers are more likely to exhibit an effective team management style suited to today′s pace and style.
