By reading this discussion you guys are supporting or saying the women can be a best manager. All the points what you said are all OK. You guys don't have confident on yourself?They manage both family and work so that then can be a best manager.

My simple question is that in our home if we want to take any financial decision we discuss it to our father not only financial but also for many major decisions. So that a man can be good decision maker. By this I say that man is a best manager than women.

Before starting the discussion I would like to explain the word what actually manager means. A manager is a person who manage every thing, take care the organisational profit, set up a link between his or her employee for further progress of company or organisation. So the definition reflect the post or the designation is not depend upon gender or sexuality.

A Person having a good responsibility, personality, ethics, capability of understanding the fact, leadership quality and communication skill can groom himself or herself for the post of the manager.

In Indian economical market there is a plenty no. of example where the managerial post are hold by men and woman simultaneously. Chanda Kochhar is the MD of ICICI bank, Arundhuti Bhattacharya plays a top role in SBI BANK, KIRAN MAZUMDER-SHAW is the MD of Biocon Limited.

On the other we can name Kumar Mangalam Birla, Harse Neotia, Mukesh Ambani as a good manger. So my point is that a deserving person should hold the right position beyond of any sort of sexual reservation.

@"Gender discrimination and male domination are hindering the females" - Gender discrimination? you are kidding right, all I see around is reservations and special treatments for women's, whether it be government post or a seat in the parliament, and talking about the domination, well its the law of nature that fittest dominate.

@"In Rajasthan women's are making papad" - wow now what do I say to that, you are doing a marvelous job.

@"Womens are good at house hold activity" - if you think house hold work and being a Entrepreneur is the same thing, you have no idea what you talking about.

@"Women are playing a key role in every field as CEO and CMD" - women's are only 2% of the CEO's and only about 20% of top managerial level all over the company, and if you think that is the key role, you have got to work on your mathematics skills.

When you say that women's are wonderful managers and find them so badly outnumbered in that aspect, don't you think something is wrong with your whole argument there, its like saying that snail has all qualities for being a good runner, but out there they don't run.

Yes I'm in favour of this statement. Women have the inbuilt ability to manage things efficiently. The example is the housewife. She has a list of things in her hand to do, like looking after the children, making them ready for school, preparing lunch/breakfast for them and for her husband. After she finishes her morning tasks, she has to then look after the house cleanliness or at the kitchen stocks.

So these sequential work automatically makes her efficient in performing the tasks. Therefore it can also be said that women are good at multitasking. So when it comes to an Organisation, they can apply their inherent traits. She has to deal with a lot of corporate relationships, employees, etc as according to her position in the organisation.

As someone said already, it is a fact that women are more calm and patient than men, ya but there are some exceptions where this point fails. They are also able to manage by virtue of their good communication skills and soft voice.

My conclusion is that women are better managers than men as seen in general but from personal point of view anyone (whether male or female) can be a good manager provided he has achieved the basic skills required through training or practice.

According to me women are better managers because they need not built this quality rather it is inherit in them. How as women are naturally proves to be the best person in managing the household activities. So if they are given chance to manage the organization they will prove to be the best managers.

Because they have the quality of managing different kind of persons at a particular point of time. For e.g. She knows it very well how to solve conflicts b/w two people, how to meet the different demands of employees etc.

AS far as good managers are concerned, one who leads and helps others to prosper in his group or organisation is said to be possessing qualities of good manager. By saying this, I meant that given topic is not based on gender. Good manager requires ethics, personality, leadership quality, communication etc. Since all these qualities can be possessed by any of the male/female managers. (For eg. Arudhanti bhattacharya, Kiran majumdar shaw, Chanda kocher, Indra nooyi, steve jobs, Bill gates, Mukesh ambani etc. ).

So my point of saying is that good managers requires hard work, exceptional talent and out of box thinking. A person or human who have above all qualities develop himself to be a good managers.

From my point of, the term good manager is not related to gender. Either man/women become good manager with their knowledge their skills, their management skills With good quality of quick decision, loving nature, patients, not quickly aggressive and better ability to convince to people easily then man is the positive nature of women.

And women have to understand sometimes without any saying other people. Women are good at mind reading very easily.

So my conclusion of this is that by various skills, More and more knowledge good communication skills people can make good manager.

Obviously Women are good managers. Gender discrimination and male dominance are hindering the females to step ahead and prove themselves. Otherwise, Women are born manager because whether it's a mom or a daughter or a wife.

A women always manages everything better. We can see examples such as in Rajasthan few women had started making papad and later their recipe is famous in all over the world. They now brought millions of turnover and helps in developing countries economy. The name of the company is "Lijjat papad".

So, its not matter whether you are male or female, the think matter is the managerial aspect and core knowledge in your respective fields.

Regarding the issues that many friends have mentioned earlier that Women physique are weak. So, they don't able to handle the field works. With the advancement in technology in today's era. Everything is automated and their are males who work under managers. So, individually if they are unable to complete the task, then team work will help it. As management is also about team work or working in a group.

So, if The developing country want to be a develop country. Than it has to make a mindset "No gender discrimination". And both men as well as women should support equally for the nation's bright future. Which makes us best one day.

Someone said "Gender is not factor to determine the managerial capacity", the why the numbers (there are only 2% women CEO) suggest otherwise, don't tell me men dominate, its the law of nature that the fittest dominate, and if you say men dominate then what you really mean is that men dominate.

@ "Now scenario has changed" - the present women make less than 20% of top managerial position in spite of all reservation and special treatment, and if what you mean is that in future women will outnumber men, then come to me when that happen,

@ "Women are more balanced and loving" - really never heard of buddha, jesus, or vivrkananda, name a women who have done it better,

@ "Women manage home and office" - well what can I say to that, good luck with that,

@ "Women list is endless, don't underestimate them" - nobody is underestimating the, but you should come and see the men's list its much bigger.

@ "Both have same brains" - then why such a big disparity in accomplishment.

@ "Prathiba patil, ekata kapoor and other names that I not heard" - really those are best names you have got, can you even compare those names with gandhi, edison, steve jobs or alexander.

Hi friends, I am Umakanta Sasmal (from Santoshpur, Ganjam). In my view women can also be a good manager because they are talented and capable, & they can contribute to the growth of that organization. To become a good manager is not depend on gender it depends upon their ability &adroitness.

As we know there are less women managers than men because women's role remains confined to the traditional roles of homemakers engaged in looking after the household and child rearing. If they are encouraged by their family & by govt providing some amenities. Ensure that they will be a good manager.

Hello everyone,

I am Umesh, Umesh khadela from NIPER, Mohali.

First of I am totally agree with the given topic that women can be good managers, because from the starting of their life they used to manage so many things like they have to do house work with educational life. With job they have to handle her parent family and after marriage also they have to handle two family and all work.

So managerial skills are inherently available in the women, but those who shows it to the outer world they can be good managers.

Also mentality of indians are now changing, they are giving equal importance to women in decision making process. And that's why more women managers are coming into pictures.

i.e. Kiran mazumdar.
Neeta ambani.
Ekta kapoor.
Swati Piramal.
And so many.

In the end, I will conclude that women possess the capacity to be a good manager but thing is they should get chance to show their capabilities.

Hi Friends.

In my point of view Both have good managers dependence up on their knowledge. Both have same brains. For example if any problem is there who take the right decision at right time then only we decide who is the good manager. But comparing with men women have good patience. And she is maintain both family and office with equal importance.

And one thing olden days women's are only on home so much of problem but now the trend will be change and each and every sector compete with men and she get success.

As many of my colleagues already pointed out the managing ability of men and women, yes we can say that its not gender but skills and ability to develop and practice these skills is sought and on this basis a manager is selected, whether it is male/female.

As the quote "leaders are born not made" is passe now a days, the paradigm that only men can be managers is out of date because in recent years, women already proved that they have all the abilities and can prove if they had given a chance.

Indra nooyi.
Arundhati Bhattacharya.

Katrina and priyanka.

All proved that they have ability and they can lead and perform well.

Well the art of managing cannot be restricted by gender. Skills are to be learned and practiced. Men or women both, can be expert with their opinions or judgements. But when it comes to framing any policy, designing a new framework, thinking of more economical means or managing a weird situation, I think opinion of women can also matter. I don't say women are better rather women should be given proper chance of letting out her views and trying her techniques of management. She may not perform better than men but she can perform equally well if given a chance. The more good managers (men or women) we have, the better it is.

Hi, this is Sayali. I think women are better than men because of having good patience, hearing ability without which it is difficult to manage employees as well as customers or clients. It creates a sense of loyalty among your colleagues and make them passionate to work for your project. Men mostly believe in action than words which is the symbol of arrogance, rudeness etc. This is the quality which make your partners go away from you. Thus, women are better than men.

As I have gone through the above points many boys were supporting women. Well that's nice it gives positive hope and feeling of living in 21st century, thank you so much friends. Yes I do agree that a good manager does not depends upon gender and it completely depends upon different skills that are required to be the good manager. There are some work which a women can do better and some work which man can do better.

But I am not agree with friend who has given lots of examples because though it shows us a man is a good manager but this doesn't proves that a women is a bad one, it shows that you are biased.

Well there are few examples have a look my friend.

1. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw is an Indian entrepreneur. She is the Chairman & Managing Director of Biocon Limited a biotechnology company based in Bangalore (Bengaluru), India.

2. Ekta Jeetendra Kapoor (b. 7 June 1975) is an Indian TV and film producer. She is the Joint Managing Director and Creative Director of Balaji Telefilms, her production company.

3. Swati A. Piramal is the Vice Chairperson of Piramal Lifesciences Limited and Director of Piramal Healthcare Limited. Dr. Piramal received one of India's highest civilian honour, the Padma Shri award, by the President of India, Ms. Pratibha Patil on 4th April, 2012 She has been nominated as one of the 25 Most Powerful Business Women in India eight times and is now a member of the Hall of Fame of the Most Powerful Women.

4. Rajshree Pathy, is an eminent entrepreneur from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. She is the Chairperson and Managing Director of the Rajshree Group of Companies and Founder of India Design Forum.

5. Radhika Roy is an Indian media baron and co Chairperson and Managing Director, NDTV. Radhika has won the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for Information, Communication and Entertainment in the year 2003. .

Manali Chowdhury said: (Thu, Jun 19, 2014 08:32:40 AM)    
Well my perspective towards this kind of statement is quite biased since I m not regardless of the feminist opinions, but the society has changed drastically and men are gradually being comprehensive about the priorities of women. In certain parts of India, people still hold patriarchal views, where women are still confined to the walls of their house and are expected to perform the domestic chores and cater to the needs of their family and spouse. Women turn out to be to better managers on professional as well as on personal grounds due to their perseverance and an inherent quality which is ingrained in them since their childhood.

Somewhere they are being mentally prepared to face such situations. We can't be negligent of the fact that even men these days do contribute some time out of their professional life to give time to family. Though the majority still lies with women for when it comes to sacrificing their ambitions for the upbringing of their wards its women who step forth. Men generally look after the external matters.

This is also because it is a pre conceived notion that mother can take better care of children than father, whereas it is not always so. Despite of being a woman I don't completely agree to this as several explanations can still be provided. I'm sure even the women/girls reading this agree that fathers take care of the family silently and are not expressive about their contribution whereas women are somewhat boastful about their importance and role in family.

But now days it is in vice-Versa. The CEO of google is a women and so many field they are giving their best.

Before some year there was no facility for woman. She was not educated so many restriction as compare to boys but after providing facility she uses of this facility very well. That's by our C.M. Providing many scheme for girls they can be become the part of our nation.

Those who possess the managerial talents, skills and ability to coordinate can become managers. Its not immaterial that only men can be the good managers. Nowadays womens are also equally talented than that of men in all aspects, so its nothing that like only men can become good managers. Infact womens take quick decisions than that of men and obviously they are successful in their work.

Being a good manager is completely gender neutral.

It depends on one's ability to make decisions, work in pressure situations, one's knowledge and so on.

Women are good in multi tasking but that cannot be a concluding statement for "women are better managers". It is one the positive points they possess.

Similarly, men are better at handling emotions than women but this cannot be a deciding statement for who is a better manager. This is simply one of their strengths.

In conclusion, it depends on one's ability and not gender on who is a better manager.

You can not generalize this statement!

It can not be treated as a fact which will remain universal truth or false, NO Matter what. Like, Square of two is 4, NO MATTER WHAT!

There are certain field, where woman have proved to be good managers. Those needed qualities to be a good manager like Good comm. Skills, convincing power, and definitely Patience and perseverance, are more found in women, compared to men.

Examples can be from your neighborhood or your family. A working women make sure her kids reach to school on time, get their meal, her husband gets his stuffs and goes to office on time. This whole along with her office work, is something men can't do, even if practiced for years!

But, Yes. When it comes to Field work, such as in a Factory or a Construction Site, a Woman is definitely going to face all the possible problems regarding work and workers. Toughest for her to handle a Strike, which is quite in Factories, though she got better convincing power, but, it will be very hard for her to invest that skill completely.

But, yes when it comes to jobs, where people behave much more sophisticate (may be because they have to) , Women have proven to be better managers comparatively.

And we should definitely not forget the power of smile :) ;).

Today, we are discussing about the topic that "do women make good manager". Here we focus only one keyword i.e.good manager. A person become a good manager if he have a leadership skill, good managerial skill, good communicational skill and so on. We cannot say that men are better manager. Now a days we found that women have also the skills like managerial skill, communicational skill, etc. They are more organised than men. They easily handle the any situation as compared to men.

Eg-Pratibha Patel.

She is one of the most successful president in our country. She has very good leadership and managerial skill.

Sometimes we can also say that they have more convinced power rather than men.

Its always yes that women can be a good manager. Gender is not the factor to determine the managerial capacity. Its the skill, attitude, patience that make a person to be a good manager. Its true that in today's world women are outnumbered, but this is due to the existing orthodox society that always shows the women their limits.

But now the scenario has changed and more number of women coming out with their talent and placed themselves in top hierarchy of business equal to men. If its about majority then when it comes to handle both family and office women are more capable than men.

I see here that the failure of women's to be as par as men has been greatly attributed to the men domination in the past, I should say, an attempt to look for excuses, history is the witness that great people have risen to glory against all adds.

Beethoven that greatest of all composers was deaf.

Edison the greatest of all scientist was considered stupid by his teachers.

Bill Gates & Steve jobs the greatest contributors to this computer age didn't make to the college.

Stephen Hawkins the greatest exponent in the field of theoretical physics is completely paralysed.

Dr Abdul Kalam missile man of India and the peoples president was from a fisherman's family.

Winners have always found there way though problems, instead of blaming there failures on circumstances they stood against the odds and prevailed.

And moreover if you think about it humans have dominated over all creatures, because they were better, and if men have dominated women's the reason should obviously the same, It is the law of nature that the fittest dominate.

It have been pointed out that criteria to be a good manager is gender independent, I completely agree with it, but given that men make most of the management flock (especially top of the hierarchy) it seems that these quality are more likely to be found in a man.

And many claim that women play a great part in managing homes and children's, I beg to differ, and if I'm wrong prove me differently. (with facts, not for the sake of it. ).

Answer when women's here are solely credited with qualities like patience, preservation, love and compassion, you would like to be reminded of mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Swami Vievekananda and Gautham budha. Oh yaa they were all men.

My Idea is not to imply anything here, but to know that if women's are so qualified, why so outnumbered (Only 2% of CEO in fortune 500 companies). And don't blame it on male dominance like I have explained it before.

Hello friends.

I will agree with all your views, concerns and opinions which are specifically said by you but don't you thing that every women cannot be a good manager she should have the all interpersonal skills to leading a company to monitoring the employees to interaction with each and every person in the concern then only she will become a good manager if this qualities are possessed by a women than only she will become good manager controlling a family is different and controlling a organization is different in organization we have to perform quick operations in any business organization and they can also that stability to perform in good and the best ways but where are the chances in corporate co.

So finally I want to tell that women are the good manager but they should have the effectiveness and efficiency and managerial skills then only they can be the best manager like chanda kohchar ceo of icici and she recently awarded as 3rd world strongest women. Jaya lalitha tamil nadu cm and in prehistory also we can find many more women managers like jahansi lakshmi bai indira gandhi etc so women is good manager.

I have been pretty much amazed to read certain opinions which conclude with a sweeping statement "Women are better managers than Men".

I would say, Women are not given a fair chance in the corporate market due to a still existing orthodox feeling that Women can't survive in this tricky & confusing world which is absolutely wrong. We should come out of this traditional feeling of Men should do work & women should manage home. Women are good caretakers & have the natural ability of being careful & committed.

Conclusion :Women cannot be judge as being superior to men or vice-versa just because of certain natural abilities. Men can handle situations well where you need a "ROCK SOLID" heart & women can where it needs handling with sensitivity. So, both Men & women have their own merits & demerits in handling diversified roles of a Manager. Women or a Men who maintains the balance between their natural merits & demerits becomes a good manager. Becoming a Good manager is GENDER neutral & women should given equal opportunities & freedom both in corporate & personal life.

The decisive factor is the potential of the person. If women has the potential to manage a particular firm she will make a good manager. But managing people in a firm needs different set of skills compered to that of managing a household.

Since the question here is 'do women make good managers?' I would say no as the gender of the person has nothing to do with management of a project. However I am not saying that men will make the best mangers just because they are men.

Again the mobility of women has serious constrains owing to the social situations and the roles she opt to play in her family. You cannot expect a married mother to stay back a bit longer to complete a particular task. So such things limit the scope and capacity of women in general.

To be a manager one requires different skills like communication skills, conceptual skill, technical skill, human skill. And must pursue different qualities like monitoring, motivating, leadership etc. A person may have the managerial quality by birth or might have learnt and developed it- but the thing how he can manage things. As per the topic of discussion I personally feel that women are better managers.

The patience and perseverance that we find in women is rare to find in man.

Women today are no less than man they are the most powerful CEO'S, HR'S, MD.

As in above few of my friends have stated that the success story of men are more than women I would like to say that this is because of our fault, in past women were discarded from everything. Now when they got the opportunity they have proved it.

If a women is determined then she can achieve anything for which she is ready to faCe any hurdles.

Everyone has their own inbuilt talent to become a manager it even depends on the passion they have it does not depend on the gender so I think manager are those who have passion, goal, leadership qualities in them nor between the gender its all about the skills they have within or which is been developed within.

Women are better managers because of the fact that they are the best economist.

It has been already proved by IIM's that women are the best managers or let me correct myself household women are best managers.

When it comes to a difficult situation women handle it very sensitively.

Examples to prove this point has an never ending list but even if we have to name a few- Chanda kocchar, Neelam Dhawan, Kiran M Shaw, Kiran Bedi, Chhavi Rajawat, sarpanch at village Soda in Rajasthan and Saloni Malhotra, Founder and CEO of first KPO in rural India - Desicrew Solutions.

1. Manager do well only when they get authority and acceptability. From customer and people Man gets more acceptability.

2. Womans most of times brings emotions to workplaces which may harmful many times.

3. Man can manages stress very well and also most of time they do not let their hard feeling out (womans always do).

4. Biologically mans brain is 10 % bigger and heaving 4% more neurons which provides man multi task and multi thinking ability.

In my opinion men and women manager are not different. However the difference is about their qualities. We can not confirm that men manger is better that women manager and we can not say women manager is better than men manger as well. A good manager depend on their born talent, experience and required skills like.

- Technical skill.

- Human skills.

- Conceptual skills.

There are many example about good women manger and men manager in this world. Those good manager is from there born talent, experience and required skills and you all can be a good manager if you know what you lack of and then you fill up.

Please stop talking about men and women difference. The sound is like gender discrimination. :) The qualities of people is very important. How much they can inspire their people!

Managers are the individuals with managerial skills who lead a group of individuals directing, monitoring, taking corrective actions wherever necessary so as to achieve a common goal. And I personally believe that any individual with good managerial qualities can be an effective manager and when it comes to women they have been the best managers ever.

Not to forget Mrs. Indira Gandhi was India's first woman prime minister, Mrs Pratibha Devi Singh Patil was our recent president, Congress leader Mrs Sonia Gandhi, Razia Sultan, Rani laxmi bai during prehistoric times and the list goes on. Have proved that women are good managers.

In organizations too women play an important role though the number may be less when compared to men but that doesn't mean that women are not good managers. You all will be very glad to hear that women today are no less than men they are among the most powerful CEO's, executives, HR's, Managing Directors like Chanda kochhar of ICICI bank, Neelam Dhawan HP (india) , Kiran M Shaw of Biocon, and many more. These names completely speak of women being better managers.

For being a good manager one needs to have certain qualities like leadership, interpersonal skills, confidence. Women have been been managing home since olden times that is why they are even regarded as home makers. The patience and perseverance that you find in women is rare to find in men. Women have thus constantly proved that they are not only good at managing homes but also organizations.

In the nutshell I would like to conclude with a very apt adage which says "The Hand that rocks the cradle rules the world".

Managers have to manage everything with that what they have. They have to take care from small care to high professionals. And at the same time they have to consider each and every person's ideas like leaders.

We can see all those qualities in women. For this my mother is best example. She can manage all my home needs with the money that is given by my father. She has to take care all my family members and at the same she has to give respect to our thoughts and sometimes she decides which is suitable to us without any hesitation.

No one can do her work in house and real corporate world there so many challenges who have to face it. And as far cooking concern man can cook well and mostly in cafes, hotels there man to cook a food.

Therefore I think women are good manager because she is good as house wife it's not right. If every success man behind women then let me say there are so many unsuccess man whom also has women. Good manager is good because he/she has good skill to compete the world it's doesn't matter women or man.

On the other hand, we can't forget men. They have also proved their best management-skills in the various fields.

Well I agree with what all my majority of friends said. Firstly it is not just the gender which is responsible for a person to prove to be a good manager so therefore we can't judge the qualities of a good manager on the basis of this trait and secondly, if we take gender into consideration it will be very wrong and biased to say that women can't prove to be good mangers then men because it is not the gender but the managerial qualities of a person which decides whether he or she is a good manager or not. Though we have healthy number of men as a good managers but we can't forget that there are many names of very good and effective women managers too. Although I agree that ratio of good women managers is certainly less but for this women are not responsible it is our society and culture which took such a long time to accept this fact and make women free to fly in their own sky.

So a woman can prove herself as a good decision maker. Most of the women can be found as the manger of her own house.

Now as far as comparision between man and women is concerned, there has been a male dominance in the past 50 years for obvious reasons, which were due to cultural ethos which the world as well as India had..

Men's make better managers than women's, many would disagree, but its a fact that you can't argue with, and I can demonstrate this fact to be true enough to be convinced. I will give names of 6 entrepreneurs who were considered best ever.

1. John D. Rockefeller (The richest man in history started his career as a assistant bookkeeper).

2. Andrew Carnegie (The steel tycoon regarded as second richest man in history was born in a typical weavers family).

3. Thomas Edison (The greatest inventor of all time only had 3 month of official schooling because his teachers thought that he is too stupid to learn anything).

4. Henry Ford (The automotive giant hailed from a family of plantation workers).

5. Steve Jobs (The co-founder of Apple Inc. The largest technology company by revenue and profit, was a college drop-out).

6. Bill Gates (The world richest person for more than a decade and the greatest philanthropist who changed PC for ever, is a college drop-out).

Yes I feel women can make good managers. I believe that talent doesn't discriminate on the basis of gender. A good manager is one who has the qualities of planning, organising, communicating, directing, reporting, leadership etc and these qualities don't depend on one's gender.

A woman is the one who manages the house and the family. So her managerial qualities can't be doubted. As already quoted we have many examples like Pratibha Patil, Indira Gandhi who have managed the country so well. Also we have Chanda Kocchar and Naina Lal Kidwai whose inspiring stories motivate us. There's Preity Zinta and Ekta Kapoor who're managing their work so well.

Thus women have proved over and over again that they are not only good at managing their home but they can also manage an organisation very well.

If we look at the criterion of being a good manager we will never find any term regarding gender, so that means gender is not at important. Some qualities which are required to be a good managers are such as leadership skill, a team player, person with confidence, person with interpersonal skill etc. So these skills can be easily acquired by any man or woman so they can come out as good managers. But if we look at the numbers one can superficially decipher that men are good managers but that is not the case. Time has gone when women were considered only to be a part of family caretaker, today women is doing equally good in all other fields and that number is rising day by day.

So gender is not a thing to decide whether a person is good or bad manager, it is all about acquiring the skills and articulate them with perfection.

I agree with the point that women do make great mangers. As it is is confirmed from experts that women are better in arts than men and men are better than women in technology. Management is more of arts. So it can be handled by women more better. Also they are multitasking. Take the example of a house wife. She uses to make breakfast and make sure that her children and husband have it hot. Simulteneously she uses to cook and food pack their tiffins. With all these thnigs she uses to take their respective clothes out of the almirah and give them.

Then she packs the bags of her children and husband. After thier departure, she uses to clean home and does some stiching or any other household work. Sometimes she uses to take homework of her children while making dinner for family. This shows that women can do a no. Of works at a time perfectly. Also she uses to be very energetic even at the end of the day. Men can't do work a no. Of works at a time. Morever it depends on their interst also.

At a time men can just focus on one thing. For being a successful manager you need to be multitasking. Morever the reason behind that the no. Of female managers in India are lesser than male managers is because most of them uses to get married at early ages and after that most of them are insisted to work at home. They need to leave their professional lives. Women need the more exposure in India. This is the case with not only India but most of the countries.

I don't agree that just because the data says in present scenario there are only 2%of c e o so women cannot be a good manager its really shameful that even in this century women are not able to realize their strength & capability. Women are only enemy of women who creates hurdles on the path of success of each other. Not completing the education, early marriage, shouldering the responsibilities of family&children at early age etc. But the scenario has changed in metropolitan cities. Many companies have women in high posts. And I have seen wife is in manager post & husband is looking after the home or completing his higher studies, or working under her as a clerk. I do believe women are better manager than men.

Well this point is very intial one for our management sector. So I think that manager is a manager. This term is not come under gender. A man and women are managers. But I think women are as sharp as men in a managerial sector because awomen can handle her house and also handles the professional work in the componies. So she have patience, leadership, communication, teamwork. And the willpower of her is great. And she also take a right decision on her own responsibility. So women definitely be a good manager.

To be good manager there is no need of men or women qualification i.e gender qualification. Having the quality like courage, decision making capacity, communication skills, relationship skills, good listener, confidence etc is required.

If we say women are good at multi tasking or good at managing things then it is right but she is also emotional fool whereas men they are physically strong but mental they are less capable of handling stress so what I want to say is each gender has its own pros and cons.

In today's world women are coming out and working but had me ever thought that if a women is successful then to support her there is a men (Father, brother or husband).

So to become good manager you should have that qualities first and not required to be men or women to be good manager.
Eg- jyoti naik, indra nooyi, pratibha patil , chanda kochar, indira gandhi, partibha patil etc..

I think women are the good manager when compared with men, they are responsible they take care of their family, children and the office as well. They have patience and they know when and where to speak in a good manner. They don't act aggresive as men geneally do. Women can make balance in her worklife. In an organisation as mental strength is needed not physical strength so women are the most suitable for that. We have many examples also which proved women to be a good manager like jyoti naik, indra nooyi, pratibha patil etc.

Yes, I feel that women can becomes a good manager as the woman is the person who manages a house, a family, a life and also the man. Because without a good woman a man is nothing. If she can manages the personal life better than a man then definitly she can manage a professional life as well.
