In order to test some major hypotheses on leadership styles of women managers, empirical
research was conducted among subordinates with male and female supervisors in Greek
firms. Analysis of results showed that neither leadership styles nor subordinates'
satisfaction differed between employees with male and female managers. The conclusions
to be drawn from this analysis are that gender should not influence hiring, promotion
and delegation decisions, and that women managers should be encouraged to express
certain innate qualities which could contribute to the improved co-operation and
team spirit within organisations.
