Abstract:

The investigation of leadership processes normally requires the identification of various system outcomes which are potentially related, either directly or indirectly, to the exercise of leadership. Indeed, without such a specification of system outcomes, it is impossible to speak about leadership effectiveness. In previous research, leadership measures have often focused solely on the personal traits, attitude structure, or the behavioral repertoire of the formal leader. These measures have not always been related, either concurrently or predictively, to other important concepts such as individual and unit performance, subordinate job satisfaction, and work group morale. The present paper presents the development of several measures of these concepts which may be useful in the investigation of leadership effectiveness. Author
