In the eyes of the beholder : personality and the perception of leadership.

Schyns, B. and Sanders, K. (2007) 'In the eyes of the beholder : personality and the perception of leadership.', Journal of applied social psychology., 37 (10). pp. 2345-2363.

Abstract

This series of studies focuses on the extent to which the personality of followers is related to their perception of transformational leadership. Followers from 3 different companies and students from a Dutch university were questioned on their personality characteristics and their perception of a described leader (students) or the perception of their actual leader (employees). Although the results differ for the different samples, we found a relationship between followers' personality and the perception of transformational leadership for all of the different samples. The different relationship that we found may hint to the impact of context on the relationship between personality and the perception of leadership. In the discussion, we explain our results in light of these different contexts.
