Abstract:

The study tests the hypothesis derived from the Contingency Model that leadership training and experience may be viewed as improving the favorableness of the leadership situation. In very favorable and unfavorable situations, training and experience should correlate positively with performance of task-motivated low LPC leaders but negatively with the performance of relationship-motivated high LPC leaders. In intermediate situations, experience and training should correlate positively with performance of relationship-motivated, but negatively with performance of task-motivated leaders. The hypothesis was validated and extended in a study involving 55 section chiefs of field artillery crews. Author
