Abstract

The potential of a probabilistic developmental model of leadership with a possible vast array of organisational applications, suggested by a recent study, is evaluated in light of the historical development of the leadership construct and to suggest directions for the future. The historical development of leadership theories is explored, the model presented, and its potential and limitations discussed.

Abstract

What is the best way to formulate a task group for optimal participation? Four hypotheses, which could affect a group process interaction are tested by a survey of MBA students. The major process variable appears to be length of time studying, implying that the more time individuals are exposed to process issues, the more time they will want to spend on process issues in groups.

Abstract

My research is to forward knowledge and potentialities regarding individuals of autism and their place in societal’s sense of work and it’s physical space. The seven transformational Ss of academic thought have allowed or even imposed a superposition of autopoietic subjects rather than objects and their being-in-the-world. In this chapter I first present my interpretation of the seven Ss – storytelling, system, sustainability, science, spirit, spirals, and sociomateriality – then I speak where my voice is strongest in the storytelling system, and finally I elaborate on how my seven Ss antenarratives can be utilized in the autism storytelling system.

Abstract

The determination of an employee's commitment to their organisation has many important managerial implications. Lack of commitment seems to be involved in high costs and poor service. Salancik Steers and Schein suggest that commitment is a useful indicator of organisational effectiveness as well as a key variable in shaping employee attitudes. There is evidence that organisational commitment is a better predictor of employee turnover than job satisfaction. Moreover, committed employees may perform better than uncommitted ones.
