Communication styles differ between Men and Women. We have all heard of the book “men are from Mars, women are from Venus” and there is a lot of truth in this. The gender issue has been explored thoroughly in a study by John E. Braird and Patricia Hayes Bradley Go HERE to look at an article about it.
In my experience women often mimic the male role when they are in management and become successful managers because they master the basics of management, the male variety that is. So the question becomes if there is a female style of management and if they would be more skilled for management tasks.
This and many more concepts of management get highlighted in this book, that now already is in its 8th edition. Truly a standard work on communication.
