This paper examines the role of women as managerial leaders and the differences between male and female styles of leadership. Research studies have shown that men tend to be more aggressive and controlling as leaders while women tend to be more focused on personal relationships. Although the male style has been traditionally associated with success, there is evidence that the female style is more appreciated by followers. The paper argues for a new paradigm of leadership that incorporates the styles associated with both genders. KEYWORDS: leadership management women gender differences female leaders. MLA Style. 5 pages, 12 footnotes, 5 bibliographic sources. 1,287 words.
