Personality and Leadership Behavior.
Knowles, Henry P.; Saxberg, Borje O.
The values provided by managerial leadership assume increasing importance to a society permeated by religious doubt. In exercising his leadership role, his obligation and challenge are to transmit only those ideas which can form a constructive base to focus the synergy of the members of the organization. He must impose upon himself rules of behavior and be aware of the fact that his actions affect the design of society today and influence the thinking of tomorrow. Managers are therefore urged to move on to the level of need-fulfillment, or meta-fullfillment. These terms refer to a spiritual commitment to a productive life orientation. By being himself synergistic, the manager can create organizations of men mobilized by synergy. (Author/CK)
