Project Description:
Introduction
With the advent of increased, workplace dynamics are changing. Gender differences in the workplace account for differences in a lot of factors. One of these is conflict. As subordinates become more autonomous, work-teams increase and supervisors take on leadership roles, conflict is almost inevitable. However, it is not the conflict itself that is important as important is how that conflict is handled and resolved. This study will aim at understanding gender differences and conflict management styles and what, if any, differences exist in the conflict management styles of experienced and less experienced managers. As different managers have different management styles, this study will also touch upon an ancillary component of conflict management which is the relationship between management style and conflict resolution effectiveness.
