Exploring the Bermuda Triangle: Review of Gender, Societal, Team and Individual Leadership Theories
Gage, Andrea J.; Mumma, Shelly; Fritz, Susan
Journal of Leadership Education, v3 n2 p35-51 Fall 2004
The relationship between an individual's comprehension of his or her role in society, the gender expectations of society, and how these thoughts and stereotypes influence an individual's behavior in particular settings seem to be separate, yet interrelated. It is for this reason that an analysis of four main theories of gender and leadership must be reviewed for contrasts and comparisons. This paper reviews and analyzes the research literature on Social Role Theory, Implicit Theory, Attribution Theory, and Leader Emergence Theory. Further it draws conclusions and comparisons that will provide recommendations and implications for future research and practice.
