In Support of Universalistic Models of Managerial and Leadership Effectiveness: Implications for HRD Research and Practice
Hamlin, Robert G.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v15 n2 p189-215 Sum 2004
Various researchers have recently challenged "contingent" models of managerial and leadership effectiveness, arguing that logic suggesting the universality of manager and supervisory leader behaviors is compelling, although there is sparse empirical evidence to support this view. A comparative study of the findings from three previous empirical factor analytic studies into the criteria of managerial effectiveness, carried out in three different types of public sector organizations in the United Kingdom, support the view that "universalistic" as opposed to "contingent" models are more consistent with the facts. A generic model of managerial and leadership effectiveness is presented, and the implications for HRD research and practice are discussed.
