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.

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.

In conclusion I would like to say managerial skills not denpends on gender. One who has the ability who will be good manager.

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.

What we require to be a good manager is that good decision making, good communication, motivation to employees and manage the entire business and produce maximum output with minimum input and improve productivity so why there is question of men and women? Despite the fact is that women have ability to manage her family from her childhood so she can not manage business.

Well, I think both men and women can be good manager depending upon the talent, leadership skill, communication skill, decision making. And he or she should have capability to manage situation. So there is no point in making difference.

I think that women are good managers because no men will not run the family as well as a women. A family itself it needs the women "without a women a men wouldn't be" without a men a women would be. Not only that the other quality i.e., their sincerity, hard working skills will make her a good managers.

Women possess the skills of managing things. Women are already proved to be best managers. On the other side of the coin there is no skill that can't be taught and learnt to someone irrespective of the gender. Its only practice that makes them good at what they do.

I think, men are best manager than women, because if women's are best managers, then why number of women managers are less than men manages. So we can say men's having good managing quality than woman.

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. .

The list is endless. So don't under estimate women. Women and men both can be the good manager only because of their skills and not because of the history of managers.

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.
