Woman Doctor Declared “Dictatorial”

This story of resignations and unfair dismissal will remind people that a poor manager is a poor manager, regardless of gender.

Dr Glenda Stone, the head of a government taskforce to promote women in business, has lost her position, along with her seat on Lord Mandelson's small business forum. News of Stone's ousting as women's business tsar came as an employment tribunal found she had bullied workers including female staff with her "dictatorial and intimidating" approach.

Dr Stone’s, "Bullyish, intimidating and inflexible,” conduct shows that bad behaviour is an equal opportunities offence. The ACAS advice is worth reading.
