Abstract:

Subjects for the study were American citizens of Chinese descent whose parents grew up in China prior to immigration to Hawaii. All subjects were students at the University of Hawaii. Small groups of students met to discuss issues of importance to the university and were of current interest. Leadership was either authoritarian, laissez faire or democratic. Some groups met with male leaders while others met with female leaders. It was found that both authoritarian and democratic leadership were equally effective when leadership was male. Male leaders were more effective than female leaders. Laissez-faire leadership was least effective for both males and females. Author
