Part 3 – Follow up Questions

  1. Who is the head of the family in your culture?

In my culture the head of the family is generally the oldest male member of the family. In most parts of India there is a patriarchal society.

  • Are men better at decision making in a family?

There are no gender differences as far as decision-making is concerned. Generally the decisions are made by the oldest male member in the family in patriarchal societies, but as far as the ability to make decisions is concerned I believe there are no gender differences and women are as good as men in making decisions.

  • Do you think that in future there will be more women leaders?

What the future holds in store for us no one can tell and so it is difficult to say whether they’ll be more women leaders in future. However, as women are coming up in all fields shoulder to shoulder with men so maybe in future we will see more women leaders.

  • Should a leader discuss with team members when making decisions?

Yes definitely, a leader should discuss with his team members while making decisions, but the final decision should be at the leaders discretion.
