Female Bosses are the actual gem for an organization: Here is why?
It is always good to work under female bosses. You can Love her or hate her, She doesn’t give a damn. There is always some advantage of having a Female Boss. So, folks, without taking much of your time, let’s look at what benefit you have in your pockets if you have a Female Boss!
Benefits of having female bosses
They are very Empathetic
Your boss is more emotionally inclined in the way that you are. A female boss is more likely to understand your workplace issue, respond to a situation, and guide you accordingly. It is easier to tell a female boss when you have an off day thanks to personal problems.
She is very much organized
Ladies, we all know that we are much better than men when it comes to multitasking, efficiency, and staying organized. It is just the way we are wired. Your female boss is more likely to be able to help you stay on top of things and make the best use of your time – and we say this from experience! Well, all we can say is this is an inborn talent we have.
Your boss can relate to your monthly issue
How cool is it to have a boss who understands how it feels like hell every time you get your period? You know you can ask her to lend you a pad/tampon in an emergency, which is a blessing! Yes, a male boss can never understand that feeling or mood swings you go through at that time. But a female boss will easily relate to it.
She will make fair decisions
Being female, she will not judge your work performance based on your gender. Unfortunately, far too many male bosses favour other men or have been known to be partial to a woman they find attractive (yes, this happens). Still, you can be confident that a female boss will make fairer decisions based purely on work performance – after all, she is where you were before!
She understands your online shopping addiction
If you are caught browsing through countless shopping websites at your desk, she is less likely to criticize you than a man. In fact, your boss probably sneakily shops online, too, in the privacy of her office. Women stick together when it comes to the power of retail therapy! But yes, this should happen if it does not affect your work.
Female Boss can understand the work-life balance
Modern-day women juggle everything, from a demanding job to running a house to finding the time to catch up with their besties. A woman in charge goes through the same daily struggles you go through when it comes to managing your life and will always be able to guide you on balancing your work-cum-personal situation.
Effective ways to maintain a healthy relationship with a ‘Queen’ aka Female Boss
Working with a female boss? Here are a few things you need to understand!
Working for a woman or female boss is quite different from working for a male boss.
According to a survey, more than 2/3rd of people like to work with a male boss, and only 1/3rd want to work with a female boss. But the fact is, you can’t change your boss.
Here are a few practical ways to maintain to relation with Queen:
Know your Limits: One should always stay within their limits. One should know their limits even if she is friendly with her staff. She might not like you –social behaviour towards her.
Understand the difference between cooperation and Incapability: Cooperation is in females’ genes. She loves to take input from her team before making any decision that doesn’t mean she is not capable of making important decisions.
Let her know you respect her viewpoint: Let us all admit that most women have to do a lot of hard work to prove their mettle. You should make her realize that you value her viewpoint. Doing this will hit the right chord, making it easy to work with her.
Ask for advice: Females can give you some excellent advice. So, if you are stuck in any situation, feel free to seek her advice. If you are confused, talk to her but do not make assumptions on your own.
Don’t interrupt: When she comes for a meeting, do not interrupt in between. Well, this is a common practice, but you need to be more careful with the female boss. If you have doubts or want to add something, just note it.
Sometimes people think that working with a female can be easy, but that’s not true. Handling them and maintaining good relations with them can be really tricky. Someday, you might find her calm and composed. Some day she can become completely unpredictable (There can be different reasons). So, it’s better to maintain good relations with her.
