The Comparative Aspect of Theoretical Analyze and Leadership Styles vs. Methods of Assessing Leader Roles

Grigor Dede, Alba Robert Dumi, Samuel Humbley S’eche


In recent years many social scientists management consultants and other writers have addressed the topic of gender and leadership style. Same authors with extensive experience in organizations who write nontechnical books for management audiences and the general public have argued for the presence of sex differences in leadership style. For example Olden (1985) maintained that there is a masculine mode of management characterized by qualities such as competitiveness, hierarchical authority high control for the leader and unemotional and analytic problem solving. Olden argued that women prefer and tend to behave in terms of an alternative feminine leadership model characterized by cooperativeness collaboration of managers and subordinates lower control for the leader and problem solving based on intuition and empathy as well as rationality . Our Meta analysis thus provides a systematic quantitative integration of the available research in which the leadership styles of men and woman were compared and statistical analysis were performed on the resulting data. The fact that investigators have examined many facets of leadership style requires that reviewers decide which facets to include and how to organize them into types. In examining this issue we found that the majority of the studies had assessed the extent to which leaders or managers were concerned with two aspects of their work. The first of these aspects we termed task accomplishment that is organizing to perform assigned tasks .The second aspect we termed maintenance of interpersonal relationships that is tending to the morale and welfare of the people in the setting.
