Online Submission
The following research investigated gender and the leadership role and determined if there are differences in leadership styles, behaviors, traits, and characteristics between female leaders and male leaders. Literature suggests there are specific gender leadership differences between males and females in leadership styles, behaviors, traits, and characteristics. This qualitative study assessed 2 male and 4 female faculty members with face-to-face interviews. Results indicated distinctions between male and female leaders in leadership differences. The distinctions did not, however, support the notion that female leaders are less competent than male leaders. (Contains 1 table.)
