The Androgynous Manager: Myth or Reality for the Workplace Negotiations of the 1980's?
Ansell, Kathleen K.
A study investigated the relationship between male and female employees' perceptions of the androgynous/nonandrogynous communication style of their immediate supervisors and their own job satisfaction. Subjects were 100 males and 100 females employed in business and industrial settings and responsible to male supervisors. The subjects completed the Bem Sex Role Inventory according to how well each characteristic described his or her immediate supervisor. Perceptions of job satisfaction were measured through the use of ten researcher-designed questions and 21 items extrapolated from the Job Description Index. Analyses of the results indicated that no significant relationship existed between an androgynous supervisor's communication style and employee job satisfaction. (FL)
