Impact of Long-Term Communication Training on Managerial Style and Perceptions of Organization.
Cullinane, Laura E.; Stacks, Don W.
A study examined the impact of a working commitment to corporate communication and corporate communication education on perceptions of management and managerial style and the more general perceptions of the organization. Subjects, 15 male mid-level managers at a large southeastern chemical plant that had in place a continuing corporate communication education program, were surveyed for their perceptions of organizational behavior. Results indicated that all managers fell into the high task/high relationship managerial style but differed significantly in their style range. Results also indicated that perceptions of the organization's communication were found to be significantly higher than reported national norms. (One figure and four tables of data are included; 22 references and a corporate management program seminar are attached.) (RS)
