Are Women Better Managers Than Men?

Your Two Cents: Are Women Better Managers Than Men?

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Carol Smith, who is senior vice president and chief brand officer for the Elle Group, said women are "hands down" better managers than men. She even went so far as to add "There’s no contest."

In my experience, female bosses tend to be better managers, better advisers, mentors, rational thinkers. Men love to hear themselves talk. I’m so generalizing. I know I am. But in a couple of places I’ve worked, I would often say, “Call me 15 minutes after the meeting starts and then I’ll come,” because I will have missed all the football. I will have missed all the “what I did on the golf course.” I will miss the four jokes, and I can get into the meeting when it’s starting.

As a woman, the bold stance intrigued me, particularly having just read about Shari Storm's Motherhood Is the New MBA: Using Your Parenting Skills to Be a Better Boss. Do you think it's true?
