Are Women Better Leaders Than Men?


Well, before some people get uncomfortable over the title of this article, let me specify. Are women better leaders than men? Many people seem to think so. Women are statistically more compassionate, patient, and understanding than men, which leads people to believe that women are better suited as leaders.

Then again, you have the other side of the spectrum, those who believe that men are better suited as leaders, solely because men are raised to be more assertive and to take charge. Let’s bring this argument to the office; does your anatomical makeup really matter when it comes to choosing a leader?

Some will say that it doesn’t matter, and others claim that it does. Would you be more comfortable or feel more inclined to work under a female or a male leader during a work project?
