Study Finds Which Gender Makes Better Decisions
The battle of the gender decision makers is on. Who do you think makes better decisions? I’ve seen lots of really bad decisions made by both sexes!
But these are the results of a scientific study and according to a study… women make better decisions than men.
Researchers surveyed more than 600 board directors to see whether men or women make better business decisions.
They found that women are more likely to consider the rights of others and to take a cooperative approach to decision-making… and this leads to better performance for their companies.
The study which was published this week in the International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics found that “men prefer to make decisions using rules, regulations and traditional ways of doing business or getting along.
Female directors, in contrast, are less constrained by these parameters and are more prepared to rock the boat than their male counterparts.
In addition, women corporate directors are significantly more inclined to make decisions by taking the interests of multiple stakeholders into account in order to arrive at a fair and moral decision. They will also tend to use cooperation, collaboration and consensus-building more often — and more effectively — in order to make sound decisions”.
