If recent studies are anything to go by, your answer should most definitely be a man.

According to a recent article, men are considered less bullying, egotistical and overbearing compared to ladies, with four out of ten women who have female bosses insisting they could do a better job.

And the female backlash doesn’t end there. A study of 2,000 companies in the U.S with more female board members experienced lower profitability.

Not much of a triumph for feminism so far, is it?

All is not lost though. Women do, it seems, make a difference to bankruptcy with statistics suggesting that by having one female director on a board a company cuts it’s chances of going bankrupt by 20 per cent.

So what do you think? Is there a reason why men make beter bosses, or do you feel passionate about waving the flag for lady leaders?

Given the choice, would you rather work for a man or a woman?
