Personality and the Fate of Organizations For Kindle
This chapter investigates the connections between personality and leadership in order to clarify the leadership effectiveness. It is discussed that those specific aspects of both the bright side and the dark side have been shown to be most influential. The connections between personality and leadership can be assessed through the connections between the bright side and leadership; between the dark side of personality and leadership; and between personality and leadership using data based on implicit leadership theory. Data show that personality and effective leadership are associated, and the two key factors mediating the link are the leader's socio-political intelligence, and the degree to which the leader is seen as having integrity. Leaders make a difference for good or ill in firm performance. Keywords: personality , leadership , dark side , bright side , implicit leadership theory , socio-political intelligence , integrity , firm performance.
Managers should learn as much as possible about personality in order to understand their employees. Hundreds of personality characteristics have been identified. We have selected eight characteristics because of their particular influences on individual behavior in organizations. Some people believe they are masters of their own fate. Other people see themselves as pawns of fate, believing that what happens to them in their lives is due to luck or chance.
