Abstract:

To investigate the effects of ascendancy and perceived locus of control on reactions to participative and manipulative leadership, 108 subjects were divided into 4 groups on the basis of Guilford-Zimmerman ascendancy scores and Rotter I-E scale scores. Members of each group were randomly assigned to either a participation or manipulation session in which they were asked to resolve a small group dilemma. Results indicated that the two personality measures were associated with different reactions to the two styles of leadership. Furthermore, as predicted by the pat h-goal theory of leadership, even small differences in personal rewards were related to satisfaction with the decision, satisfaction with the job, and estimation of future productivity.
