Research on leaders indicates that strong leadership depends on certain behavioral factors as well as an established sense of trust and cooperation between leaders and the individuals they lead. In order to understand what has the greatest influence on an individual’s leadership abilities, this study was conducted to uncover what factors play the largest role in how an individual leads others and how they view others as leaders; the factors examined were extraversion, gender, honors college, class standing, and GPA. Along with this, the study was designed to determine the impact of ambiversion on leadership as well as the aforementioned factors. According to research, ambiverts are more dynamic and their behavior depends upon the situation at hand. In this study, a survey was conducted to gather information on students, assess their level of extraversion, and obtain their experiences both as leaders and when other individuals were leading them. Based on personality, extraverts felt more confident and effective in their leadership abilities, introverts were more authoritative in their approach to leadership and took charge of the group, and ambiverts did not feel confident or effective as leaders. Overall, women were more confident in their leadership abilities and felt they were more effective leaders. Women also are considered more team style leaders that encourage group members to participate and view success as a group effort. Men are more authoritative in their leadership style and believe the group should follow their rules. Along with this, women rated themselves as introverts less than men. Along other dimensions, W.P. Carey students are less about the people in their leadership style than other majors, and Barrett students are more focused on the task side of leadership than non-Barrett individuals. Additionally, students in the top GPA bracket are more team style leaders while students in the highest class standing are less team style with their leadership approach.

THE EFFECTS OF MENTORING AND NETWORKING ON CAREER SATISFACTION, SALARY AND PROMOTIONS: A META-ANALYSIS

This meta-analysis examines current gaps in mentoring and networking research. Both mentoring and networking have been shown to lead to career satisfaction, promotions and salary increases. However little research has been done to compare the relative effects that each has on these career outcomes. Recent research that led to this analysis has shown that both networking and mentoring lead to positive career outcomes and both are needed however, some studies revealed that mentoring leads to more promotions while networking leads to higher salary and higher career satisfaction. However when this data was analyzed across more studies, meta-analytically, there were several inconsistencies with the original hypothesis. The findings from this study do suggest that there is a significant and positive correlation between mentoring and intrinsic satisfaction, salary and promotion. However there are unknown moderators present for intrinsic satisfaction. The relationship between networking and intrinsic satisfaction and salary were positive but not significant and networking and promotions were not related significantly. Statistics suggested moderators were present in the networking relationships. Additionally networking did not have a more significant relationship with intrinsic satisfaction and salary than did mentoring. Mentoring did prove to have a more significant effect on promotions than networking did. Overall more research needs to be done to understand the mixed results in this area of research.

The Impact of Emotional Intelligence on Team Effectiveness and Firm Performance: The Case of Top Management Teams

Description

The purpose of this paper is to examine the existing bodies of research on the validity and value of cognitive intelligence and emotional intelligence in relation to top management teams

The purpose of this paper is to examine the existing bodies of research on the validity and value of cognitive intelligence and emotional intelligence in relation to top management teams (TMTs) and how those relate to TMT integration and firm performance. The approach of this paper is an aggregation and summary of empirical research to propose a theoretical model of how emotional intelligence directly relates to firm performance. Findings of several researchers show that cognitive intelligence matters to individual performance across the board and that emotional intelligence matters to leadership, team integration, and firm performance in various contexts. Practical implications are higher levels of emotional intelligence lead to high firm performance by augmenting high cognitive intelligence levels that executives already have. The unique context of top management teams provides original insight into the value of high emotional intelligence when trying to achieve TMT integration in order to reach better firm performance. Propositions and future research directions give way to further solidification of the thesis.
