    Nice Poll, Albertina!!
    I was always wondering - what is the best for employes - male or female boss.....
    As we can see in your Poll - most of us (for today) choose Male-boss...
    I guess it depends of area where do you working...
    In my opinion, women - more emotional and it is easy for them to go out of balance in hard situations....that is not good trait for leaders, who need to be rational and decisive....
    But we are more creative and have a fresh-look on problems....so in some spheres we win more often than males....Do you agree??
    What boss do you have, by the way??

    I've always preferred myself being my own boss, other were useless apart from me.

    However I will go with women, and most recently my wife who is my mentor in my business. Last great leader in Britain was Was a woman, Margeret Thatcher, with the ones after her being wimps. The previous great leader was Elizabeth the 1st. So, go for women.

    does it matter?

    as long as the person is competent, knowledgeable and knows the job that comes with the position. to me it does not matter as such.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    I think citizenship and the accompanying cultural milieu the boss was reared in make much more of a difference than gender.

    Citizenship? In what sense?

    Citizenship= The country the person grew up in/is a citizen of. The word "Nationality" tends to confuse people in Russia, who assume it means the same as ethnicity. I think in most western cultures, ethnicity has less bearing on a person's behavior and outlook than the cultural milieu he was reared in (the country he's a citizen of).

    On this forum maybe, but we do occasionaly get a few pests from somewhere else Who do we see as sense.

    But as you have seen on this thread on another topic I have gone for women. Maggie Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth the 1st for example. It depends what we are talking about.

    I am a good boss, I think. I don't beat my direct reports, let them go to lunch and tell them what to do so that they don't have to think by themselves. Here. Vote for female bosses.

    They're ok. But WOW! But what about dealing with some some on them on the wrong time of a month, just before their period. Aren't they much more vicious than men. Watch out men!! Do you know what I;'m talking about. It's like Jekyl and Hyde.

    But I love it later, "Im so sorry! "I'm so sorry" I really do love you darling" I didn't mean it
