The backbone of any good business is reflected in the way a manager handles the various roles in an organization. The toll that a manager would receive in this regard is that there are also consequences to the daily management of a business as it critically requires a manager to fulfill tasks essential to running a successful business. Some of these tasks include being the “leader, negotiator, figurehead, liaison, and communicator” (The role of the manager in an evolving organization, 2016).
These roles are made even more complicated by the fact that contemporary managers are no longer confined singularly to local business management but work in multi-national companies which consequently implicate the social and economic circumstances for them on top of dealing with the global dynamics and neglecting social issues.

When we say that “women” are “better” managers because they “care” more, “relate” better, and “are less aggressive,” we are feminizing the qualities or attitudes of managers. Men can also care more, so to speak. They can also be very fair and objective than women. Are women better managers? I do not necessarily agree that men or women are good managers. While I consider women as good managers, I do not want to “label” their excellent management with their gender.
