Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to see if there existed any differences between male and female superiors. The theoretical framework was based on transformational, transactional and laissez-faire leaderships styles. The sample was employees in three companys (n=24). Three hypothesis were formulated: (1) female superiors are more transformational than male, (2) male superiors are more transactional than female and (3) male superiors are more laissez-faire than felmale. The method of measurement was a modified version of the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire. The findings of the study did not confirm any differences between female and male superiors in the components of transformational and transactional leadership styles. The result of the hypothes that male superiors are more laissez-faire than female was confirmed. Male superiors applied behavios of the laissez-faire style more than female superiors. The findings were also related to previously research. It is important to point out that the findings of this study can not be generalized based on a smal sample.
