ABSTRACT A Confirmatory Factor Analysis of a 4-factor model about leadership traits is presented. Pursuing this goal, a sample composed of 1003 Argentinian adults (Mean age= 32.89 age; S. D. = 10.33) was examined with a scale of attributes (Hanges, 2004; Hanges & Dickson, 2004). Scale¿s adjustment for a 2nd order 2-factor model (positive or prototypical attributes and negative or antiprototypical attributes) was also studied in leaders and subordinates, by sex, age and type of business organization. Se presenta un análisis factorial confirmatorio en el que se examina la invariancia factorial de un modelo de cuatro factores sobre los atributos del líder -liderazgo carismático, orientado al grupo, hacia sí mismo y participativo-, a partir de una escala de adjetivos (Hanges, 2004; Hanges y Dickson, 2004) en una muestra de 1003 sujetos adultos de población argentina (Media edad= 32.89 años; D.E. = 10.33). Se estudió, además, el ajuste del instrumento para un modelo factorial de segundo orden de dos factores (atributos positivos o prototípicos y atributos negativos o antiprototípicos) en personas con y sin personal a cargo, así como según sexo, edad y tipo de empresa.

    ABSTRACT: Data gathered from a sample integrated by 363 adults (47% military and 63 % civil general population) are presented. They were asked to write on a protocol their ideas related to leadership behaviors and to mention ten main characteristics associated with leadership. A survey including leadership styles using a Likert type answering form was also included. Participants agree that leadership is a psychosocial process. For managers being a leader implies to guide a group to a target. Military participants consider power and accomplishment of norms as important ones; cadets think that a good leader cares about subalterns and shows good examples with his/her actions. For army officers knowledge and competence are more important, experience and charisma for the civil sample. Argentine managers and politicians are perceived as leaders if they are able to interchange favors or aids. Se presentan datos obtenidos en una muestra integrada por 363 sujetos adultos, 47 % militares y 63% civiles de población general. Se les solicitó que escribieran sus ideas relacionadas con los comportamientos de liderazgo así como que enumeraran diez características importantes vinculadas con el liderazgo. También se administró una encuesta sobre estilos de liderazgo que debían responder en una escala tipo Likert con 10 opciones de respuesta. Para todos los participantes el liderazgo es un proceso psicosocial. Quienes cumplen trabajos gerenciales estiman que implica guiar a un grupo hacia el logro de una meta. Para los militares son importantes la ascendencia y el respeto a las normas; los cadetes consideran que un buen líder es quien se preocupa por los subalternos y brinda buenos ejemplos, en tanto que los oficiales hacen más hincapié en la idoneidad y el conocimiento, la población civil en la experiencia y el carisma. Gerentes y políticos argentinos se perciben líderes si saben intercambiar favores.

    ABSTRACT: Leadership has traditionally been seen as a distinctly interpersonal phenomenon demonstrated in the interactions between leaders and subordinates. The theory of leadership presented in this article proposes that effective leadership behavior fundamentally depends upon the leader's ability to solve the kinds of complex social problems that arise in organizations. The skills that make this type of complex social problem solving possible are discussed. The differential characteristics and career experiences likely to influence the development of these skills also are considered along with the implications of these observations for leadership theory and for the career development of organizational leaders.

    ABSTRACT: The effects of cognitive leadership labels, item type, and temporal delays on the descriptive accuracy of leadership ratings was examined in a sample of observer-subjects who viewed a videotaped interaction of a problem-solving group. The results of the study provided support for several hypotheses derived from cognitive categorization models of the leadership perception process. Observers tended to ascribe more behavior to the leader that was consistent with an initial leadership label (prototypic behavior) than behavior that was either inconsistent with that label or unrelated to it (nonprototypic behavior). In addition, observers were more capable of accurately reporting the presence of nonprototypic behavior than prototypic behavior within an immediate rating condition. This accuracy, however, deteriorated significantly with a temporal delay in rating. In contrast, to the extent that prototypic behavior had been accurately rated within the immediate rating condition, the temporal delay had no significant impact on observers' rating accuracy for these behaviors.
