This paper introduces the information on the issues and challenges of women leading men, especially in work settings traditionally dominated in men. In addition, it observes, explains, and answers the questions on different topics, such as if a supervisor makes a threat, it is necessary to carry it out or not, if you have ever been punished for a mistake on the job and that action was fair or not.
Observing the first question, it is possible to say that if a supervisor makes a threat, it is not always necessary to carry it out. The employee does not need to carry a threat out if it is unfair or unlawfulandcan harm him/her. It is very important to analyze the threat first, and then draw appropriate conclusions. But everyone should remember that the supervisor must never make illegal threatsto his/hersubordinates.
I have ever been punished for a mistake on the job and that action was fair. Being a salesperson,my main responsibilities were to conclude the contracts with the clients and provide them with a discount of 10 percent.Wrongly, I made some mistakes in the contract, which subsequently led to the unpleasant consequences for the organization.As a result, the company posted a loss in the amount of the employee wage. I was reprimanded and received a written warning related to the given situation. This action can be considered to be fair because the company posted a loss due to my lack of attention.
In general, it should be mentioned that it is very important to understand the reason of the introduced mistake before punishing the employees. Never draw any hasty conclusions. It is necessary to reveal how a person relates to his/her mistakes (seeks to correct, draws some conclusions, etc.) Maybe the best solution to some problems is just to send an employee on training courses, seminars, etc.
Talking about the issues and challenges of women leading men, especially in work settings traditionally dominated in men, it is possible to say that today’s male dominated industries began to open their doors to the women. But this action can cause some issues and challenges. Firstly, a lot of women feel inconvenient and uncomfortable working in male dominated places because they are forced to fit into a male dominated society or culture. Secondly, there are some challenges that are connected with attracting and involving women in male dominated work places and choosing those individuals who are experienced and well-qualified for the given position. Men who are satisfied working with male employees can be indignant with female employees who will be able to change the working conditions and office environment as a whole. Despite this fact, it is possible to state that women are often frightened to work with a huge number of males because they are aware of some dissatisfaction or indignation that may occur due to their collaboration.
Talking about hiring female employees, it is necessary to mention that the process of their selection should be the same as menhave. Hiring a woman, it is necessary to take into account her qualification, job achievements, etc. By law, everyone has the right to work equally regardless of gender. Often, however, companies are looking for specific positions of employees of a particular sex.
Thus, taking the above-stated information into account, it is possible to conclude that there are some issues and challenges of women leading men in work settings traditionally dominated in men. Hiring experienced females in male dominated work places could prove to be challenging.
