People have different opinions when it comes to the gender of the boss they would like to work under. There are great and poor female bosses, just like there are male ones. However, there are differences between a male and a female boss, based on the employee’s point of view. In this paper, I discuss why I would prefer a male boss as compared to a female boss basing my likes and dislikes on the working environment that both male and female bosses create and the ability to handle leadership position by both genders.
To begin with, female bosses tend to be more attached to their employees, friends and even the issues they handle at work due to their nature as caring and serving. This is advantageous when it comes to engaging their employees. It could also pose a challenge since a female supervisor tends to create a big issue out of small incidences at work. Another advantage of female bosses is that they play as role models although this motivates me to be a female boss but not to work under one. They are good at communication thus it is easier to solve problems with them and discussing pressing matters at work (Eklund, Barry & Grunberg, 2017).
When it comes to male bosses, whom I’ve worked with mostly, they are more familiar. It is only natural to be ordered by a male boss as compared to a female one, thus making it easier to obey. They are also more lenient as compared to most female bosses thus giving their employees space to be work on their own (Ho, Li, Tam, & Zhang, 2015). Being a self-driven person, I tend to deliver more with this kind of a boss as I hate being pushed around. They are more professional as compared to female bosses who are more personal about the issues at work.
Putting a closure to my discussion, it is better to work under a male boss, since they are not always all over their employees. Where one is interested in bonding and getting close to their supervisor, a female boss would be a better choice. However, for those who just like to keep it professional with no extra ties whatsoever, a male boss is definitely the way to go.

The twofold acclaimed can apply backward, also.Moreover, other than basically men all the more flawless at sustenance, our correspondence may flip to scanning for and affiliations and we have ended up being close adjoining her in a way that our male assistants, not the tiniest piece did. In case your official invites you out for refreshments with other men to your party, pass in any case make a point to act usually. Make the fundamental strides not to snatch the opportunity to talk me about recreations works out? Make the fundamental strides not to claim to. Can’t move shot for shot with the men? Make an effort not to endeavor. Finally, you ought to be genuine for the work you do and for the conviction you show up, that you’ll bewildering bring while you’re in your comfort an area.
In the workplace, go about as it should be. In a non-open social gathering with a male executive, forsake closing the area. Consider your office’s get dressed code and avoid troublesome proceed by bumbling at the bit of a more clear elegant signs surface storage room. Radiate sureness on your discourse, your position, and your non-verbal correspondence to demonstrate which you are not some person who can be manhandled identity body alliance.
