In addition to being a trait, self-confidence refers to a behavior and an interpersonal skill that a person exhibits in a number of situations.
Self-confidence is akin to being cool under pressure.
Self-confidence was among the first leadership traits researchers identified, and currently receives considerable attention as a major contributor to leadership effectiveness. Humility is the leadership that comes from putting people in the limelight, not the leader.
Core Self-Evaluations. Core self-evaluations is a broad personality trait that captures bottom-line self-assessment, composed of self-esteem, locus of control, generalized self-efficacy, and emotional stability. All four traits are positively related to each other. Group members consistently believe that leaders must display honesty, integrity, and credibility, thus engendering trust. Also helpful is telling the truth and conducting yourself in the way that you ask others to conduct themselves.
Trust is also related to transparency, in which organizational leadership is open rather than secretive about activities that affect the welfare of stakeholders. Two examples of trust builder are to make your behavior consistent with your intentions, and telling the truth in ways people can verify. A meta-analysis of studies involving 27, individuals found that trust of a leader was highly associated with a variety of work attitudes of group members, such as satisfaction.
The relationship between trust and job performance was positive, but low. An online experiment found that integrity facilitated the leader being trusted, which in turn was associated with higher performance. Embedded in the trait of being trustworthy is authenticity—being genuine and honest about your personality, values, and beliefs, as well as having integrity. To become an authentic leader, and to demonstrate authenticity, be yourself rather than attempting to be a replica of someone else.
A study conducted with two telecom firms in China found that employees who reported to supervisors with authentic leadership behaviors tended to to be better organizational citizens, and were also more engaged in their work. Being extraverted contributes to leadership effectiveness, and extraverts are more likely to want to assume a leadership role and participate in group activities. A meta-analysis 73 studies involving 11, subjects found that extraversion was the most consistent personality factor related to leadership effectiveness and leadership emergence.
Research evidence suggests that an extraverted leader may be more effective in stimulating good job performance among laidback than proactive workers.
Letting others know where you stand contributes to leadership effectiveness, and also being or appearing extraverted. Assertiveness refers to being forthright in expressing demands, opinions, feelings, and attitudes. Being assertive helps leaders perform tasks such as confronting group members, demanding higher performance, and making legitimate demands on higher management.
Enthusiasm, Optimism, and Warmth. Group members respond positively to enthusiasm, partly because enthusiasm may be perceived as a reward for constructive behavior. Enthusiasm also helps build good relationships with team members. Enthusiasm often takes the form of optimism which helps keep the group in an upbeat mood, and hopeful about attaining difficult goals.
Being a warm person and projecting that warmth is part of enthusiasm and contributes to leadership effectiveness in several, ways including giving emotional support.
Sense of Humor. Humor helps dissolve tension and defuse conflict. Self-effacing humor is the choice of comedians and organizational members alike. One of the research-based rules of humor is that higher-status people joke at a higher rate than those of lesser status, and ten to be more successful at eliciting laughter from others. Task-Related Personality Traits Certain personality traits of effective leaders are closely associated with task accomplishment even though they appear to be more accurately classified as traits than as behavior.
Proactive Personality. According to its original research-based definition, a person with a proactive personality has a relatively stable tendency to effect environmental change. An effective leader often has a proactive personality, and therefore exhibits proactive behavior.
A study found proactive high-level managers as perceived by their managers establish more challenging goals for their business units which in turn are associated with higher sales performance. Passion for the Work and the People. A dominant characteristic of effective leaders is their passion for their work and to some extent for the people who help them accomplish the work.
Passion for the work is especially evident in entrepreneurial leaders and small-business owners who are preoccupied with growing their business. Being passionate about the nature of the business can be a major success factor in its survival. Emotional Intelligence. How well a person manages his or her emotions and those of others influences leadership effectiveness.
Four key factors are included in emotional intelligence: A sense of humor is the most contagious mood. A recent synthesis of research studies suggests that emotional intelligence is only one of various factors including other personality traits, cognitive ability, and functional skills that influence what leaders accomplish.
Flexibility and Adaptability. A leader must be flexible and adaptable enough to cope with change, especially because a leader is someone who facilitates change. Flexibility, or adjusting to situations, has long been recognized as an important leadership characteristic.
Leaders need the courage to take risks and to take the initiative. The motives described here are task-related. The Power Motive Effective leaders have a strong need to control resources. They vigorously exert power, think about how to alter the behavior of others, and care about status.
Personalized Power Motive.
Leaders with a personalized power motive seek power mostly to further their own interests, and enjoy dominating others. Leaders with a personalized power motive do not worry about everybody liking them.
Socialized Power Motive. Leaders with a socialized power motive use power primarily to achieve organizational goals or a vision. These leaders are less defensive than those with a personalized power motive, and they are more willing to accept expert advice.
Note that the distinction between doing good for others and doing good for oneself is often made on the basis of very subjective criteria.
A leader who does good for thousands often gains in power and stature.
The Drive and Achievement Motive Leaders are known for the strong effort they invest in achieving work goals. Drive refers to a propensity to put high energy into achieving goals.
Achievement motivation refers to finding joy in accomplishment for its own sake. Tenacity and Resilience Leaders are better than nonleaders at overcoming obstacles. Tenacity multiplies in importance for organizational leaders because it can take so long to implement a new program. Resilience is part of tenacity because the tenacious person will bounce back from setback through continuous effort. Problem-solving and intellectual skills are referred to collectively as cognitive factors..
Cognitive or Analytical Intelligence Strong problem-solving ability is a fundamental characteristic for effective leaders in all fields. Research spanning years has demonstrated that leaders received higher scores than most people on mental ability tests.
The relationship is likely to be higher when the leader plays an active role in decision making and is not overly stressed. Cognitive intelligence is all the more useful for leadership when it is supplemented by practical intelligence, the ability to solve everyday problems by using experience-based knowledge to adapt to and shape the environment.
A study of printing industry executives found that entrepreneurs who learn through concrete experience, and amplify their practical experience with growth goals are more likely to lead and operate growing ventures. Knowledge of the Business or Group Task An effective leader has to be technically or professionally competent in some discipline, particularly when leading a group of specialists.
The importance of knowledge of the business is strongly recognized as an attribute of executive leadership. Knowledge of the business is critically important for strategy formulation. Creativity Many effective leaders are creative in the sense that they arrive at imaginative and original solutions to complex problems.
Creative ability lies on a continuum, with one end being represented by business leaders who think of innovative products and services. At the other end of the continuum are leaders who rely on standard solutions to problems. Insight into People and Situations Another important cognitive trait of effective leaders is insight, a depth of understanding that requires considerable intuition and common sense. A manager with keen insight is able to make good choices in selecting people for key assignments.
Farsightedness and Conceptual Thinking To develop visions and incorporate strategy, a leader needs farsightedness, the ability to understand the long-range implications of actions and policies.
Conceptual thinking refers to the ability to see the overall perspective and makes farsightedness possible.
A conceptual thinker is also a systems thinker. Personality traits and mental ability are based on certain inherited predispositions and aptitudes, which, however, require the right opportunity to develop. For example, a person may inherit high mental ability but needs the right experiences to learn to develop innovative solutions to problems facing the group. Leadership appears to be a combination of nature and nurture.
Advances in neuroscience provide additional evidence that leadership most likely has a biological component. An effective leader is adaptive, and adaptivity requires an integrated brain that has strong connections across regions of the brain. EEG records have shown that transformational leadership is linked to dominance of the frontal part of the brain. However, the frontal part of the brain can be developed through concentrated intellectual activity over time suggesting that becoming a transformational leader requires more than having inherited a brain with a dominant frontal lobe.
The outermost areas of the brain govern analytical thinking and technical skills, whereas the innermost areas of the brain govern emotions. A person therefore has the genes that influence the emotional intelligence necessary for leadership.
However, experience is important for emotional intelligence because it increases with age.
Some leadership traits are more difficult to awaken or develop than others, with passion for work and people being an example.
A knowledge of the traits associated with leadership effectiveness helps in the selection of leaders. Awareness of these characteristics can also point a person toward the right developmental experiences, such as learning to become more assertive. The current emphasis on emotional intelligence, which is really a group of traits and behaviors, reinforces the importance of the trait approach.
The trait approach is limited because it does not specify which traits are absolutely needed in which leadership situations and how much of each trait is needed. For example, when does ambition cross the line and become greed and gluttony? A realistic starting point in improving emotional intelligence on your own is to work with one of its five components at a time, such as empathy.
You would first obtain feedback about your empathy, and then work diligently on any deficiency. After the attempted improvements in empathy, solicit more feedback. Developing emotional intelligence can also be achieved through mindfullness, of being more aware of your thoughts and actions.
A constructive application of trait theory is to think through which cluster of traits is most likely to lead to positive outcomes in the situation at hand. Finding the right cluster of traits to emphasize in a given situation is usually more useful than emphasizing one trait.
How Self-Confident Are You? Most people question their self-confidence at times, helping to make this quiz relevant. Leadership Self-Assessment Quiz Behaviors and Attitudes of Trustworthy Leader Behavioral specifics of being trustworthy are particularly important because of the renewed emphasis on trustworthiness for leaders in recent years.
