Dear Student,

What I have done here is outline the points of leadership gender that you requested.

I have also provided excellent resources and summarized how they apply to the questions.

You have plenty of time now to carefully consider some of the research and apply it in your own words.

I have included notes with my work. I have not formatted the assignment, and was not sure what all your assignment needs were, but there is plenty of information in the resources and notes that I feel confident that you can carry on from here.

Best success in the assignment.

Sincerely,

Bonnie K. Hinsdae, MBA

Leadership Gender

1. Do you think that men and women lead the same or differently?

Brief Answer:

According to Noor, Uddin and Shamaly (2011), academic researchers hold opposing positions to writers in the mainstream press as to whether women differ in leadership styles from men. In fact, academic researcher doubt that gender has any relationship to leadership style and effectiveness ( Noor, et al., 2011). Women have been found to exhibit more transformational or charismatic leadership than men, despite the opinion that women are less effective than their male counterparts (Noor, et al., 2011). According to a study by Eagly and Carli (2003) and Young and Hurlic (2007) any difference in leadership styles actually ends up as an advantage for women (Noor, et al., 2011).
