Chapter
In this chapter we examine various human resource management (HRM) implications involved in the leadership of fluid teams. Leadership of fluid teams, which are distinguished by their dynamic composition, requires consideration of issues that may not be as pertinent for stable teams. In particular, we focus on the concept of familiarity. Composing a...

In this paper, we explain and examine how engaging in part-time entrepreneurship (creating and managing side businesses while remaining employed for wages in existing organizations) uniquely positions individuals to exhibit innovative behavior in employee roles. To study this phenomenon, we integrate the literatures on entrepreneurial learning, kno...
Article
We conducted two studies to examine whether realistic job previews (RJPs) act as a protective antecedent of work interference with family (WIF). In the first study of public school district employees (n = 183), we found support for the relationship between RJP and WIF with met expectations partially mediating the relationship. Furthermore, work–fam...
Article
There is a certain discrepancy that can be labeled a fundamental paradox of Hersey and Blanchard's Situational Leadership Theory (SLT). On the one hand this model is intuitively appealing and popular among practitioners. On the other hand there is a consensus in the literature of a dearth of solid empirical evidence supporting the model. This study...
Article
Interviews of project team members about factors that lead to high levels of team performance were used to create a survey that was given to 151 project teams in the engineering and construction industry. The survey focused on project team leader behaviors, use of team building, and team member characteristics as predictors of project cost and sche...
Article
The purpose of this study is to develop a research model that integrates the relationship between innovation characteristics (innovation diffusion theory) and technology characteristics (task-technology fit model). With the research model, the current study investigates adoption of the “personal information system,” a concept we develop here in the...
Chapter
Research suggests that follower accountability can be influenced by both internal and external mechanisms. This chapter examines how followers' commitment to their own moral principles (internal) may be congruent, or in conflict, with a servant leader's principles (external), and thus have a positive or negative interactive effect on the followers'...

Purpose – With extant research on the relationship between trust and effectiveness being inconclusive, the present study attempts to create a foundational investigation that examines the role of multiple mediators in the team trust – team effectiveness relationship. The authors identified the two emergent states of cohesion and satisfaction as inte...
Article
Using an experimental design, we examined the interactive effect of situational (explicit presentations of an honor code reminder and of a realistic course warning) and individual (self-perceived cognitive ability) factors on business student cheating. Explicit presentations of both the honor code reminder and the realistic course warning led to si...

This article presents a discussion of the importance of a course in bargaining and negotiation to university-level students in an accredited business school environment. In addition to discussing recommended content, pedagogy, and assessment methods, the results of a study that examines the impact of the course on students' perceptions of skills, a...
Article
The ethics literature has identified moral motivation as a factor in ethical decision-making. Furthermore, moral identity has been identified as a source of moral motivation. In the current study, we examine religiosity as an antecedent to moral identity and examine the mediating role of self-control in this relationship. We find that intrinsic and...
Article
What differentiates successful from unsuccessful open source software projects? This paper develops and tests a model of the impacts of license restrictiveness and organizational sponsorship on two indicators of success: user interest in, and development activity on, open source software development projects. Using data gathered from Freshmeat.net...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper develops and tests a model of the impact of licensing restrictiveness and organizational sponsorship on the popularity and vitality of open source software (OSS) development projects. Using data gathered from Freshmeat.net and OSS project home pages the main conclusions derived from the analysis are that organizational sponsorship has a...
Article
It has been argued that political skill is one of the most important competencies leaders can possess, contributing to effectiveness in organizations. However, little empirical research has been conducted to date to test notions concerning the effects of leader political skill on employee reactions. In this study, a causal model was proposed and te...
Article
We examine the multidimensionality and level of analysis issues of the leader skill political construct and test its effect on leader effectiveness ratings using administrative personnel from a public school district. Using a target report measure, our results show that a subordinate's perceptions of leader political skill exhibit two dimensions an...
Article
In this paper, we explore the integration of trust and accountability, and in so doing, we employ the accountability role theory model proposed by Frink and Klimoski [Toward a theory of accountability in organizations and human resources management. In Ferris, G. R. (Ed.) Research in personnel and human resources management, vol. 16 (pp. 1–51). Sta...
Article
The present study investigates the impact of the political skill of leaders on team performance. More specifically, this study examined the role of leader political skill in the performance of casework teams in a large state child welfare system. Team performance was operationalized as “permanency rate,” or the successful placement of children into...

Emotional intelligence reflects the ability to read and understand others in social contexts, to detect the nuances of emotional reactions, and to utilize such knowledge to influence others through emotional regulation and control. As such, it represents a critically important competency for effective leadership and team performance in organization...
Article
Prati, Douglas, Ferris, Ammeter, and Buckley (2003) have proposed that emotional intelligence is a critical component in effective team leadership and team outcomes. John Antonakis (2003) questioned whether the first claim in this article, that emotional intelligence is critical for effective team leadership, is justified. He presents six questions...

Considerable theoretical work has been published to date concerning the relationship between demographic composition of organizations and the performance of those firms. Indeed, under the topics of organization demography, substantial thought has been given to how demographic composition influences organization performance. Unfortunately, little em...

Organizational politics has intrigued academicians and practitioners for decades. Yet, serious scholarship on politics in organizations has emerged as a viable body of scientific inquiry just within the past twenty years. In general, theory and research on organizational politics has been sorted into the two categories of political behavior and its...
Article
In this response, we address three central themes of the Fedor and Maslyn and Dipboye and Foster commentaries. In doing so, we attempt to integrate their perspectives by presenting possible extensions to the current research stream. We suggest that these research extensions will generate a broader understanding of the perceptions of politics constr...
Article
Leadership has been an active area of scientific investigation for over half a century, with scholars developing different perspectives on antecedents, processes, and outcomes. Conspicuous in its absence has been a conceptualization of leadership from a political perspective, despite appeals for such a theory and the widely acknowledged view of pol...
