    Some organizations favour more typically masculine values and reward their associated practices. Attributes considered as being masculine as dominance, determination or strength are protected, rationality is considered superior to intuition, task orientation is considered more effective than interpersonal relationships orientation. In principle, things made by men strengthen the competition and the determination; women’s worries strengthen the female character, the concern for family and lifestyle. The question that emerges is: Can men and women in Suceava organizations transfer typically male or female characteristics to each other? And if so, what can provide professional and organizational success? Through this paper, we propose to study and analyze issues to which we referred in the arising questions.
