Dominance hierarchy vs. Geltungshierachie

Overview

In her book describes the Professorinto the male hierarchy as a dominance hierarchy, whereas purely feminine groups tend to establish a hierarchy of validity. The dominance hierarchy is power-oriented, you have to fight for the rank. Impressive and intimidating are the preferred strategies.

Once the ranking has been established, the domination hierarchy is relatively conflict-free, despite its competitive character - a point that keeps women astonished.

Anarchy as the basis of democracy?

Overview

Bishop Köhler, on the other hand, sees the hierarchy of pre-eminence as the basis of democracy, since it allows an egalitarian social structure. However, it is less stable because the recognition of others depends and donation does not mean that one is also willing to subordinate itself then.

In the following, I will illustrate by means of an example how these different hierarchy terms affect one another:

Validity is the wrong approach

Overview

Simone Schaller became a leader in the electrical industry. She is very ambitious, performance-oriented and ready to go, and receives a lot of recognition and support from her direct supervisor. What she lacks is the recognition of her own three male employees. With them she wants to apply something, because she works so well, money for Company saves.

But this is the wrong approach. It is about the employees respecting them. And so it is still in the bad. One employee does not stick to agreements on working time, another does not implement content and formal requirements and does not provide the agreed information in good time.

Make clear who the boss is!

Overview

Here Simone Schaller is called to make clear that she is the hierarchical boss and that she has certain expectations for the employee. And she has to agree with him about whether he is ready and able to fulfill them.

Once the goal has been agreed, it takes a while to control the interim results, until she is truly respected as the boss. However, various studies have repeatedly shown that women who behave cautiously female, can rise worse, but on the other hand, women who prevail are considered unfeminine and unsympathetic.

Career woman - a dirty word?

Overview

The term "career woman", which has been rampant since the 1980 years, sounds like a verbal abuse in the ears of many women, as if it could not in any case mean a real woman.

It is interesting that the interplay of the male domination hierarchy and the female hierarchy of pre-eminence has a profound effect on women.

Men who lose, arrange themselves. Women do not even try!

Overview

Men fight each other for their rank, their opponents try to win. If they fail to do so, they rank in the ranking and wait for better opportunities.

Women often do not even begin to try to get through, and then pull the shortest.

Strength and competence as taboo?

Overview

The results of an empirical study by the Munich-based psychologist Nathalie Klingen show that women in their dealings with each other pay close attention to equal rights and democracy in the group.

Accordingly, in a pure group of women in general, the strength and competence of individual members as well as competition among themselves are taboo and open power struggles are avoided. However, this can make it difficult for women to resolve conflicts.

Just do not take it personally!

Overview

Men are also fighting against women as a potential competitor - I hear the arguments from the women in my workshops and coachings. They are either unfeminine, bitchy or too young.

Women personally take these attributions personally and thus do not gain recognition in their system of the hierarchy of appreciation for their achievements, which they believe they are entitled to.

Insults

Overview

Their reaction, however, is usually not to take the principle of domination hierarchy into view and to fight their position, but retreat. The effect is that the men stay under themselves - also because the women do not show clearly that they want to have the position and are the right ones, no matter what the men call them.

For women, it is important to classify these utterances as what they are - as micropolitical expressions expressed within the framework of the dominant hierarchy of domination and part of the game.

    Hello Ms Nitzsche,

    that sounds as if the censured recognition of men is interpreted as submission, even if woman does not mean it?
