The CEO of your company has asked you, the human resource manager, to conduct a study to determine whether or not male managers and female managers perceive leadership styles differently and, if differences are found, to develop a training program that will benefit gender differences in leadership. To this end you selected, randomly, 10 male managers and 10 female managers to participate in your study. To each manager a leadership style survey questionnaire was administered. The questionnaire chosen was the Blake & Mouton Managerial Grid as it assesses leadership behavior. The numeric raw data results of the 18 question study are as follows: Raw Numeric Questionnaire Data Question 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Male 4 4.6 3.2 3.9 4.2 3.7 4.1 4.5 3.5 Female 4.2 4.1 4.2 4.6 3.9 4.1 4.7 4.1 4.2   Raw Numeric Questionnaire Data Question 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 Male 4 3.9 4 3 4.5 4.9 3 3.3 3 Female 4 4.2 4.1 4 4.5 4.3 3.9 4 3.7                     Complete the following in a single MS Word or Excel document: 1. � Calculate the mean, median, mode, variance, and standard deviation for the numeric data. 2. � Construct a histogram, pie, or Stem-Leaf Display chart encompassing the mean leadership scores for both male and female managers. Use an online interactive program to formulate your histogram, pie charts, or Stem-Leaf Display. 3. � Construct a histogram for median score values for male managers and female managers with respect to management style. 4. � Analyze the data and present preliminary conclusions based on answers to questions #2 and #3 with respect to the leadership style differences between male and female managers. 5. � Offer a brief 5-point summary of the training program you might use to strengthen the leadership deficiencies found in either or both the male and female manager leadership style. Any conclusion drawn for the t-test statistical process is only as good as the research question asked and the null hypothesis formulated. T-tests are only used for two sample groups, either on a pre post-test basis or between two samples (independent or dependent). The t-test is optimized to deal with small sample numbers which is often the case with managers in any business. When samples are excessively large the t test becomes difficult to manage due to the mathematical calculations involved. Calculate the “t”� value for independent groups for the following data using the formula presented in the module. Check the accuracy of your calculations. Using the raw measurement data presented above, determine whether or not there exists a statistically significant difference between the salaries of female and male human resource managers using the appropriate t-test. Develop a research question, testable hypothesis, confidence level, and degrees of freedom. Draw the appropriate conclusions with respect to female and male HR salary levels. Report the required “t”� critical values based on the degrees of freedom. Your response should be 2-3 pages. Salary Level Female HR Directors Male HR Directors $50,000 $58,000 $75,000 $69,000 $72,000 $73,000 $67,000 $67,000 $54,000 $55,000 $58,000 $63,000 $52,000 $53,000 $68,000 $70,000 $71,000 $69,000 $55,000 $60,000 *Do not forget what we all learned in high school about “0”�s
