  6. Conclusion

French managers are quite different from American managers, in the sense that they don't have the same relation with their superiors and that they don't value the same working ability in a company. French people try to be less personal in their working environment that in the US.

In French company, employees don't really try to learn about their superior's personal lives and their real personality. They tend to be less open for creating an informal relationship between each other in order to know each other better and work in a more relaxed environment. This is more of an American way of managing. In French company, the status of the manager is really what gives you the power on your subordinates. It's what makes things done. The personality of the manager does not really have an influence on how the French employees are going to work. They respect the position, not the person.
