At a general level, I see some value in thinking about "masculine" and "feminine" characteristics. But when it comes to dealing with individuals - as a manager or as an employee- there are so many more things to think about. I used to manage a guy who suffered from panic attacks (crises de panique). He was a good guy who worked really hard but we never got him on to the next performance level. He only told me about his panic attacks after I had left the company, but I think that this explained why his performance was "only" very good and not excellent. As his manager, I had tried a lot of different approaches, but thought it was just that he lacked the extra motivation that he needed. There are so many things to think about.

Yes- a manager has to be a good coach and a mentor (now more than ever) http://blogs.bnet.co.uk/sterling-performance/2010/05/10/three-ways-to-mentor-millennials/. I also think that it is important for all of us to find those who can coach us and mentor us. We can learn from books, the internet, etc. but we learn a great deal from other people.

then for the gender gap, i really don't know!
but i would rather say that there's no big differences between men and women, but there are different context, and both do not grow up in the same context.

I did agree to say that communication was the most important thing.
but what i have learned also is that a manager is really important for its staff, he has to make people developing in their work and that is a big responsibilaty

So do you still think that communication is the most important thing? I agree that communicating is important- mushroom managment (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mushroom+management) is terrible. For me, being organised and managing my time are as important as communicating.

The manager has an important role in terms of organization of his team, but also in terms of the organization of the company ! The manager has the role to link his team to the internal environment, but also external, of the company

My opinion did not really change ! I have the same expectation about management ! I think that managers have a real role in the company.
I do not think that the perfect type of manager exists, because i am sure that the managers have to adapt their actions according to the company and external environment of the company

what i found the most interesting is to see how they do to develop leadership in a large company as GE ! As she said, it is very expensive for the company. But, the cost of this expenses is necessary for the future of the company !

In the first session, we looked at 5 questions:

 What is management?
 What is a manager?
 What does a manager do?
 What makes a good manager?
 What are the key management skills?

Briefly, have your views on any of these changed over the last 6-8 weeks? If so, how have they changed? If not, why not?
