Statistics have revealed that the majority prefer male bosses to female ones. The argument is that female bosses are domineering, overly assertive, demanding and they micro-manage employees. Ironically, male professionals are not penalized for exhibiting similar traits in the office.
According to a recent leadership study by Larissa Tiedens of Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and Dr Melissa J. Williams, Assistant Professor at Goizueta Business School, it has been found that women were particularly penalised for dominance that took on a verbal form. For example, women who negotiated for higher salaries were disparaged more than men who asked for similar privileges.
