Leader Empathy and Influence Behavior as Joint Determinants of Leadership Effectiveness

Track:

Keywords: Empathy; Influence Behavior; Leadership Effectiveness

Similar survey studies were conducted in the USA and Turkey to obtain self-rated empathy from managers, subordinate reports of a manager’s use of influence tactics with them, and effectiveness ratings from the immediate boss of each manager. The results suggested that a manager’s empathy and use of four core tactics were independent determinants of leadership effectiveness. In addition, this study is the first one to show that strong empathy enhances the effects of a leader's influence behavior. Limitations of the research are identified and we provide recommendations for future research to learn more about the subject.
