Abstract:

Groups of 12- and 13-year old Chinese boys who lived in Hong Kong met in a boys club atmosphere to work on a series of modeling tasks. Two types of leadership were employed, authoritarian and democratic. It was found that productivity and morale were somewhat better for those groups that had authoritarian leadership. The results, however, were not as significant as in earlier studies using the same kind of research design and carried out in India. Author
