In this chapter, we aim to highlight the main gender differences in terms of leadership, to provide a critical comparative analysis, to discuss potential barriers that need to be overcome, and to find some ways of increasing organizational performance through a better leadership style. The focus will not be placed on the gender differences by themselves but on the ways these differences can positively influence the organizational performance. Our proposed chapter is mainly based on literature review as a methodology in its own right. Since literature review has revealed quite many divergent opinions, we also used questionnaires and interviews as data collection tools and we intend to present some of our results, without aiming to generalize all these results to different cultures.

Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Sex Roles. This study represents an attempt to show a relationship between leader behavior and sex-role identification. Results support a connection between masculine characteristics and structuring behavior as a leader, but do not uphold hypotheses for the relationship between sex-role identity and leadership style. It is suggested that research should attempt to study each of the four dimensions of sex-role identity and leadership style as independent concepts. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.
