How to Support Innovative Behaviour?The Role of LMX and Satisfaction with HR Practices  [PDF]
Karin Sanders, Matthijs Moorkamp, Nicole Torka, Sandra Groeneveld, Claudia Groeneveld
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2010.11007
Abstract: Innovative behaviour of employees refers to a key aspect of organizational effectiveness: the creation, intro-duction and application of new ideas within a group or organization in order to benefit performance. Using data from a Dutch and German survey in four technical organizations (n=272) we developed and tested two models to explain the relationships between Leader-Member-Exchange (LMX), satisfaction with HR prac-tices (employee influence, flow, rewards and work content) and innovative behaviour. As expected both LMX and satisfaction with HR practices were positively related to innovative behaviour. Furthermore, we found evidence that satisfaction with HR practices mediates the relationship between LMX and innovative behaviour. No significant interaction effects between LMX and satisfaction with HR practices on innovative behaviour were found.

Abstract: With the development of research on emotion in organization, emotional creativity had been receiving more and more attention from scholars and practitioners, and had become an important theme in Management Psychology in foreign countries. At present, although scholars at home and abroad have begun to focus on the effects of emotional creativity on innovation, but most studies ignore the process mechanism between emotional creativity and innovative behavior. Based on the social constructivist theory of emotion, this study examined the relationship between employees’ emotional creativity and their innovative behavior, as well as the role of leader encouragement of creativity and employees’ creative role identity. The sample populations used for our analyses consisted of employees and their immediate supervisors from 26 enterprises in the area of Changsha, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. Surveys consisted of two parts, an employees’ survey and a supervisors’ survey. The two parts of the survey had a common serial number, which was latterly used to match the employees’ completed surveys and supervisors’ completed surveys. Items measuring emotional creativity, and leader encouragement of creativity and creative role identity, were included in the employee survey. Items measuring employees’ innovative behavior were included in the supervisors’ survey. A total of 1000 surveys were administered. The response rate was 82.50 percent, and 708 matched-employee-supervisor surveys were obtained finally. Data analysis included: Firstly, factor analysis were conducted to examine the common method bias; Secondly, correlation analysis was conducted to examine the intercorrelations among all the variables; Finally, multiple regression analysis were used to test the meditating effect of creative role identity, and to test leader encouragement of creativity acting as a mediated-moderator. The results showed that, when employees’ emotional creativity was high, the probability of their innovative behavior was also increased, and this relationship was mediated by creative role identity. Leader encouragement of creativity positively moderated the relationship between employees’ emotional creativity and creative role identity. In other words, the main effect was stronger when the moderator was high. In addition, leader encouragement of creativity acted as a mediated-moderator which

Leading as Jesus Led: Christ Models of Leadership  [PDF]
Gabriel Kofi Boahen Nsiah
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2013.24016

Good leadership is a challenge in most institutions and organizations in our world. This problem emanates from having the right people to lead in such institutions and organizations. People have assumed leadership responsibilities by virtue of the positions they occupy but they do not have the requisite leadership training for that position. Others also have looked up to certain individuals who have their own challenges. The problem of leadership in our world therefore calls for studies in finding solutions to the problems. In view of this, Jesus Christ, the greatest leader ever lived, is brought into perspective. Christ leadership models will inform all leaders as to what it takes to be a true leader. If these models are adopted, it will help improve leadership skills in all institutions and organizations.

Results showed that undergraduates of Social Science Faculties make more “conservative” choices, both during their studies as well as during the selection of professional perspectives. On the other hand, students of Sciences show higher tolerance in uncertainty, pursuing more challenging working conditions, as well as assessment conditions during their studies, in comparison to students of Social Science Faculties.

The target population of the study is the teachers who work in primary and high schools in Kartal, Maltepe and üsküdar located in stanbul, The sample consists of 703 primary and high school teachers randomly selected from the population. The study was carried out quantitatively and data were gathered through the 30-item 5-point Likert-type scale developed by the researchers. Data were analyzed by percentages, frequencies, means and crosstabs. In order to find out sources of differences and do pair comparisons, Mann-Whitney U tests were employed while Kruskal-Wallis H tests were used to do comparisons of variables having more than three levels. According to the results obtained from this research, teachers stated that principals “sometimes” demonstrate effective leadership behaviors. When mean scores of all the items were checked, the highest score was earned by the item, “The principal plans the future of the school” and the lowest score by “Principals are open to be criticized.” There were significant differences based on gender and teaching experience of teachers and school types.
