Gender in Leadership
“Gender [Sex] has no relevance to leadership style or effectiveness.”
Do you agree, disagree, or fall somewhere in between with this statement? Explain your rationale. Remember to have a healthy discussion and to support your ideas with material from the book or other resources. You are welcome to use examples but avoid real names of people or organizations. Be respectful in your statements.
*Note: While used interchangeably, “gender” and “sex” are not the same term. Gender refers to an identification; aspects we associate as male or female. Sex refers to anatomy; the body parts one has. I have left the term “gender” in this statement because that is the original statement but please note that there is a difference so when you respond, you may want to discuss both aspects (gender and sex).
