The research presented here studies the link between management style and the management of working teams in a sample of Valencian cooperatives with more than ten workers. It also studies gender-related management stereotypes and compares the perceptions of male and female managers. The conclusions indicate that the traditional stereotypes remain, although the gender variable is not the most appropriate way of classifying the perceptions of the people interviewed.
