Pp 133 – 150 Gender difference in Leadership styles of mature students
Elmira Bancheva and Mariya Ivanova
The article Gender difference in Leadership styles of mature students looks at current research about leadership style and behavior in general and how it applies specifically to students in a management development program in higher education. We address the following questions: What are the leadership style profiles of mature students (practicing managers); How do the female students differ from male students (gender differences); How does coaching as a new component of the MSc program relate to the development of transformational leadership style?
