Are women better managers?
It appears so. According to a survey, conducted for the Steps Leadership Program of Australia by employment consultancy firm Peter Berry Consultancy, found women were more likely to take a chance with their ideas and challenge the status quo.
Data collected from 1,800 Australian female and male chief executive officers and managers found women exhibit more strategic drive, risk taking, people skills and innovation and equaled men in the area of emotional stability.
Women make better business leaders than men in all but two areas of management. However, men have the upper hand when it comes to focusing on the bottom line and came out on top when it came to command and control of management operations and focusing on financial returns.
