Abstract:

A study was conducted to determine if leaders with high cognitive complexity scores had better performance and manifest different behavior than leaders with low complexity scores. The results indicated how the performance of groups with high complexity leaders was significantly better than groups with low complexity leaders and how high complexity leaders seemed to show more variance in their behavior over four task settings.
