This article begins with a brief overview of motivation theory and then examines the literature, tracing gender-related motivation-to-manage as it evolves through the 1950’s and 1960’s to the present. Although studies have produced conflicting results with some finding that men have more motivation-to-manage than women and other studies finding the opposite, differences appear to be small and closely related to subordinate status and role stereotyping.
