The view of male and female leadership : From a male and female perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The study is quantitative and is about working men and women’s view of male and female leadership. The intention of the study is to see if the men and women have a different perception of male and female leadership and also if they have different personality types. The method used was a survey where the sample is 80 participants, 31 men and 49 women from four different companies. Previous research shows that the perception of male and female leadership can be different, and that the reason can be prejudices and beliefs. Previous research also shows that men and women sometimes have different personality types.

          The study shows that the participant’s view of male and female leadership is different in some areas. Female leadership is characterized as more relationship-oriented and male leadership is characterized as more rational. The survey also shows differences in the view of leadership from a gender perspective. The female participants want a manager who is more emotionally driven and democratic and the male participants want a manager who controls more rational, from top to bottom. Self-estimation test PANAS (Positive and negative Affect scale) shows that the male participants are more negative than the female participants. PANAS also shows that there are differences in the male and female participants' personality types where the women in the study are more self-fulfilment and the men are more high effective.  

 

Keywords: Female leadership, male leadership, gender, prejudices and differences in leadership.
