In my view, the female is a better manager because nowadays there is deference between male and female both can do sam job in a good manner and another you take the example of all the ladies those are handling all big organisation start with SBI to PEPSI. So I agree female can be a better manager.

Women's have always proved that they are multi-taskers and are very keen learners. If women can handle her daily household chaos then I believe that she can manage and achieve whatever she wants. Many great examples of women have mentioned above and there are some more like Sakshi Malik and PV Sindhu who brought bronze and silver medal to India.

In my opinion men and women manager are not different. However the difference is about their qualities and their skills (technical, human and conceptual skill). I think a good manager is required to create a good environment with their sub-ordinate and perform their job effectively and efficiently.

Good evening friends.

I do agree about women are good manager now, we have many examples as India's first women president Pratibha Patil, first women PM SMT Indira Gandhi and also recent fighter plane officer are women so other point of view women has proved as mom, sister, wife and they are playing a vital role since to now. We need to give a chance to shine them.

Second thing is we know that position wants able person so selectors should choose a desirable person, don't think about their gender if someone is capable for the position choose him or her.

I feel that whether the Manager is a Man or a Woman, it all depends on the qualities that they possess, which is required to handle that particular job. For example, Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo, Kiran Mazumdar of Biocon and Narayana Murthy of Infosys. It is the capability that decides whether that person is good or not for a job, and not gender.

Yes, they do.

Basically, it has become a fashion to support their gender, to prove that their gender is superior, without thinking the actual case.

Still in many parts of India, male dominance exists. If women are provided a chance to prove themselves, they will definitely excel.

To make good managers, gender doesn't play a big game, but the actual willpower and efficiency does.

As we generally see, men are in the higher positions of almost all organisation. Now, the scenario is getting changed, women are placing themselves in those positions.

As per me my opinion it is baseless to compare man and woman for a post. Managerial responsibility requires talent, good understanding, managing skills, communication skill. If any person either man or woman has these characteristics he or she can be a good manager.

In short those who possess managerial quality they can be a good manager.

Although I agree that there are more men managers than women and the reason is our society attitude towards women. Women are understood as homemaker only and not allowed to live their dreams. If we give opportunity and treat everybody equally without any gender discrimination then women will show their talent in every field and can shoulder all responsibility as men do.

All I'm asking is that if women's are so talented, then why are they so outnumbered in that aspect, i.e. only 2% as CEO's and CMD's, and 20% in top managerial position, please someone enlighten me, and don't say its because of male dominance, because its the law of nature that the fittest dominate, so all you will be saying is that men are better.

And if you are about to say that its because they didn't get a chance, well I have got news for you, you never will, chances never come to you, you have to go to them. And when you say of names like Indira Gandhi, Indira Nooyi, Chanda Kochar, Pratibhatai Patil, Meira Kumar, Arundhati Bhattacharya, you can even compare those name with what I have to say, name that even you will agree with I'm not saying that women are bad managers, all I'm saying is that men make a better one.

Good evening friends.

Yes I do believe that women can make up a good manager but it is totally inappropriate to make such gender distinctions. A person having good knowledge, creativity, ability to manage people and also can evolve them altogether to achieve a prominent goal for the organization then he/she can be a good manager. In this context yes I truly believe that women can be a good managers because this is proved day and day out by the women we are surrounded with, it can be our mother, grandmother anyone.

WOMEN do possess this multitasking attitude in them from the ancient times. We are surrounded by some famous examples of leading ladies like Arundhati Bhattacharya the first chairperson of the STATE BANK OF INDIA, Chanda Kochhar the CEO of ICICI bank, Meira Kumar the first women speaker of Lok Sabha and the last but not the least Pratibhatai Patil the first women president of the independant INDIA.

If I talk about out of house work so women is also keep passing with man.

My opinion was Men only make good managers, but it was proved wrong already if we take examples of Indira Gandhi, Pepsico CEO Indira Nooyi, ICICI CEO Chanda Kochar. They were and are hold good positions and proved themselves. Management doesn't available in books. It came with outside knowledge, So I thought men only can do it better, but now a days system has changed women also having equal IQ as men, so women also can do it better.

We can also take example of Jayalalita who has developed Tamil Nadu better than any male chief minister of Tamil Nadu. Now it is the most urbanized state in south India. So women are managing better than now a days.

I do think that managerial positions cannot be justified by gender difference. It all depends on the grasping ability of the persons to learn things, to have an effective communication in the work place, to have presence and dedication towards the post with a vision to lead the people to the organizational goals.

By looking at people like Kiran Bedi, Indira Gandhi, Sheila Dikshit who have managed the people so well we cannot deny the fact that women can't be good managers. Moreover what I believe is that nothing is impossible, if someone has the ability and if he/she works hard for it then he/she will surely achieve it.

So becoming a manager totally depends upon the qualities a person posses and the hard work done by him/her but not on the gender of that person.

Hello friends,

Yes I agree with the fact that women make good managers. But It would be inappropriate to discriminate talent on the basis of gender. Any one who posses the qualities like creativity, knowledge, commitment, versatility, discipline etc can become a good managers. But talking about the topic of our discussion I think women are way better than men in managing more than one stuff at a time.

You know back in ancient days men would go into the forest for hunt and the women used to do all the stuffs like taking care of kids, agriculture work, household chores etc. So It shows that women are better at managing things from those days.

Talking about the present scenario, Indra Nooyi, CEO of pepsico, Arundhati Bhattacharya, first women to be the chairperson of State Bank Of India, Chanda Kochhar, CEO of ICICI bank, Pratibhatai Patil, first women president of Independent India, Meira Kumar, first women speaker of Lok sabha. I think these are the best example to prove that women make good managers.

In my opinion either man or woman can be the good manager. It all depends on his/her mind set, ability, exposure to situations, communication etc. People just say that only men or women are good managers. It is because some situations made them think like that. No wrong in their opinions too.

People who support men are thinking that men are good managers because til now many reputed, goodwill earned companies have only men as CEO's, top level managers. So basing on this they concluded that men are good managers. People supporting women because they manage home, family, office etc. men cannot do that.

But I won't support only men or only women. Because to be good managers first chance is to be given to prove that they are the good managers. If women are employed in top position in companies they will prove them selves and they have proved it. Men can also be good house managers and they are even doing that so today every woman can go and work.

Finally both men and women will be the good managers but the only thing is chance should be given to prove themselves.

If you ask my point of view I would say definitely they can make good managers because our society neglected women from the past to perform any outdoor activities. They were forced to manage house, husband, children and cooking all the times.

Women took that job as a challenge and now their achievement is if anybody ask a women can you cook? Can you manage house, children, husband etc. Then anyone can say you are asking a stupid question. She is a woman and that is inbuilt in her.

Now think for a while and say if the management work was provided to women, they would have done justice to the same job, not because they are good managers but they are sincere and efficient to perform any duty.

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.

Kundan said: (Jan 21, 2015)  
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.

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. ).

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

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.

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.

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.

Yes, I agree with my friend's point. Women can be a good manager than the men. To become a good manager, a person require excellent skills, intelligence, fast decision making and all these things depend on his/her education, environment around him/her.

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.

Saina Nehwal.
Jhullan Goshwami.
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: (Jun 19, 2014)  
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.

Dear friends in my opinion we are living in 21 century, so we can not distinguish between men and woman, now woman managing job and home together, she doing everything perfect in any field, few year ago people was think -work done by men can not be done by women. 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.

Dude now the world is changed and why do people stick on to the traditional beliefs that only men can become good managers ? 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. So I just wanna conclude by saying that don't just simply criticize women, because they can do anything and everything.

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.

Now a days most of the shopping mall hire the women because they easily sell the any product as compared to 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.

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.

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.
