Links between Leader Cognition, Power, and Change on Community College Campuses
Eddy, Pamela L.
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v11 n2 p95-104 Spr 2004
As organizational change at community colleges becomes the norm, presidents leading these campuses play a heightened role in guiding successful initiatives. The research reported here investigated the relationship between leader cognition and power levers of two presidents as they framed change for campus members. These leaders' underlying cognition influenced their choices of power levers and their approach to guiding change efforts. Given this linkage, leaders' awareness of how to intentionally capitalize on their strengths and being aware of their blind spots will aid in increased success during periods of change.
