Abstract:

This document contains three technical reports about perceptions of followers who describe leader performance in mixed gender units. This study is pat of Project Athena which studies the integration of women into the Corps of Cadets. The first technical report Follower Attitudes Toward Women describes a longitudinal assessment to determine if cadet attitudes toward women in the military introduced any bias to follower judgments about leader success and the causes of success. The second report Performance of Male and Female Cadets at CFT examines a comparison of all female cadets Class of 82 and a random sample of male cadets in terms of the performance ratings they received at CFT. Results found that male cadets were rated more favorably than female cadets, and regular Army officers TAC rated all cadets less favorably than did upper class cadets. The third report Critical Incidents of Good and Bad Leadership at CBT describes a content analysis of several situational and leader behavior categories both typifying and discriminating between good and bad leadership.
