Women bosses are said to make you more engaged at work and we have proof. A Gallup report entitled, State of the American Manager: Analytics and Advice for Leaders, found that 33 percent of the sample employees were more engaged when a woman is the head of the pack, compared to just 27 percent when a man is on the top. Employees are also more dedicated to their jobs when a woman runs the office.
Moreover, statistics show that female workers who work for a female boss had a higher percentage of engagement (35 percent) compared with male employees with a male manager (25 percent).
In the report, Gallup also states that companies are regularly promoting the wrong people into managerial positions, since most companies promote people based on tenure and performance instead of their management and leadership skills.
"Being a successful programmer, salesperson, or engineer, for example, is no guarantee that someone will be adept at managing," the report states. "Great managers possess a rare combination of five talents. They motivate their employees, assert themselves to overcome obstacles, create a culture of accountability, build trusting relationships, and make informed, unbiased decisions for the good of their team and the company."
