Abstract [en]

At present, extensive research and debates are conducted within the area of gender and leadership. This research can be divided into two separate camps with regard to the dominant ideas of the researchers; the similarity camp and the gender stereotype camp. The similarity camp claims that no obvious differences exist between the leadership styles of men and women. The gender stereotype camp claims that differences do exist. These differences are described in a manner that corresponds well with the two different leadership styles described by Douglas McGregor in his Theory X and Y. Women in leader positions are claimed to practise an individual-oriented, soft leadership style, i.e. Theory Y, while men in leader positions are claimed to practise an autocratic, hierarchic leadership style, i.e. Theory X.
