According to my evaluation i feel women are the best managers.The analysis goes as fiollows. Taking an example if a woman is a house wife- than she takes care of the kids entirely as the hubby has no time to do all this and handles his job. The woman takes care of the house hold responsibilites as well like getting stuffs for home (groceries),buying things for her hubby as well (clothes, necessities),buying things for her kids as well as her self(clothes, daily necessities) So here she is handling the house as well as her family. If she has inlaws than she also has to cater to their needs as well. In the above example even if she has say a helper still the helper will only help her after she guides her and the helper may not act on her own. Here the men has only responsibility of managing the financial part of the family, and so caterign to financial demands.He gives the money to the woman to manage evryones demands like the demands of kidds, as well as hers and hubbie's and the other family members and also the food and grocery part. If the woman is working than thats an added responsibility to her and than she may have a relaxation from her duties towards ghahdling the kids and that may be divided equally among the man and the woman. In all this things once after the man gets married he gets very much dependant on the woman for every thing. But they both are best managers if staying alone.

It depends what kind of position he or she on.Generally speaking, a company's station which needs making a decision immediately is more suitable for men.You may easily found that in most country the lead position is occupied by men.On the other hand,woman have some excellent merit which man can't instead.So it is a common phenomenon that women usually shoulder the manager of personnel department or logistics.

I think, the one who concentrates on his work more than personal interests is always a better manager at work.. Now whther that applies to man or woman, it dosen't really hold any meaning.. But I personally think that women are better than men in terms of managing the business...

It really depends on what the job is, what the company is all about. For example my hubby is the yard manager of a lumber yard. This would not be a good job for a woman because almost all the workers are men themselves and they wouldn't listen to a woman, to a degree. They like a hands on manager. A manager that will do the same work as them, that wouldn't ask them to do something he wouldn't do himself. But if it's a office manager, then I think a woman is better at it, because a woman relates to that job better than a man, having done it themselves.

Hello, Vikash! to be a good manager gender has nothing to do.any body who is dedicated and capable enough to handle the affairs smoothly,can be a good manager.a woman can be a better choice, in my opinion,since she manages the home and the children and of course you very efficiently as well as financial matters of home so nicely that the woman has an edge over her counterpart.but here one thing comes to mind that whether she can spare so much time in her office as a manager.so the difference arises as to who can give more time for the office.i don't feel any difference between a male or female manager what so ever.thank you.best of luck.

well i think it does not matters as to who can become a good manager a man or a woman.a good manager is one who takes the company ot the peek and one who can do this is deserves to be called as the best.its true that women work dedicatedly,but this is also true that a man is more smart.so to run a companny obth is required.women undoubtedly can handle many things in her life simultaneously but i am sure she is not able to give her best to all.since man just has to handle office,e can do it better.but not always.so its just the matter as to how one handles.

It depends of the business and the factors involved. The man manager is more organized in narrow boarders, he is strict, logical and with a good dyscipline. The lady managers works better with people, has broader perspectives and intuition.

I think that a women is the best manager. Seems to be much better organiser. But unfortunatelly the preconcived ideeas that a man must be the leader still keeps a woman at a distance. This should change now that we know that both sexes are equal and it is generally accepted.. or not?

Either parties can be better managers themselves. In our world now, women are indeed empowered. In most areas of the globe, this is really true. So, the competition lies beneath the personalities and capacities of the said parties.

I think this really dpends on the person who is sitting as a manager.i would never say that man is a superior manager in all cases becaus then this would be abiased reply.i have seen many cases where the management or the firm has performed very well with women as managers,also i dont think one would need examples to prove the enterpreunership quality of man.so what i feel is the leadership quality really depends on the individual potential of the person and not the gender.

I think leadership quality as well as the situation both are equally important factor

In organizational context, man is a better manager and in household affairs, woman is better. In organizations, there is stress, accountability, fear, mistakes - huge mistakes, etc. which suits man physically and mentally. In research, man can bear stress and account for many tasks more efficiently than woman. But though, woman is also occupying managerial post nowadays. This is showing the competency of women in organization. I think it is a good initiative but a better asset, though, is man for his ability to manage more efficiently. This is not to discriminate but a general perception and reflecting facts.

Both sexes can be honed to become a good manager. But my friend shared his view about this. He told me that men are strong enforcers while women good with details.

Both men and women can be good managers. It depends very much of personality, how active the person is by their own nature and how much initiative they can have. Somebody too soft or too nervous can't be a good manager, either man or woman.

Women mannagers or men, these are immaterial, the truth is that these depend on personality of the managers concern-there are men who want to show the whole world that they are the boss. They mistreat their surbodinates and get bossy around them-on the other hand, some women bosses sit in their managerial positions only to settle scores against the male surbodinates-any issues raised by male surbodinates passes for insurbordination-at the same time they tret their female surborniates with a co-wife attitude and thus making life horrible for the organization staff and line management.

I have never understand that but again I am old. If it is a "woman needs to establish credit" thing I can almost buy into that but husbands and wives fighting over which bill gets paid out of which account I don't and keeping things hidden I really don't. If you want to do it set an amount you can afford to have extra and split that but I would keep a joint account to pay the joint bills out of. For one to hide "their finances" from the other is not a good sign and I would honestly say it is not going well or one is spending it on something one shouldn't. If she gets in financial straits with her money it really doesn't matter that it is her account because they will come after the joint assets and the husbands. It is either a lack of trust or something is going on that they want kept secret.

Who ever is having common sense, dedication and whoever handles persons under them with heart is the best manager.

Call it a cop out but I believe a man or a woman can be a great manager as long as they can listen to their people, not just hear them. Most women can do this but there are men that can do this too.
