147. Symposium: Saturday, 12:001:20 Sheraton III (Level 4)

Why Cant Leaders Lead?

There has been substantial renewed interest in leadership theory and practice due to solidification of some initially controversial leadership concepts and theories such as transactional, transformational, and charismatic leadership. We will present conceptual and empirical evidence that demonstrates that a consideration of emotions in leadership is now warranted and critical.

Organization Values: Maintaining Continuity in the Midst of Organization Change

Few large-scale organization change efforts are successful. Organizations implementing large-scale change are challenged to maintain continuity in the midst of the upheaval/uncertainty inherent in major change. This practitioners forum will examine how two organizations used their core values to ground, guide, and energize their change efforts.

Conceptualization and Measurement of Organizational Climate: Safety Climate as Exemplar

Research on organizational climate and culture is characterized by conceptual ambiguity, evident in the fact that many authors fail to discriminate between them. The purpose of this tutorial is to increase conceptual clarity for the participants by focusing on unique attributes of the climate construct, including methodological and measurement implications.

Subconscious Priming: A New Approach to Goal-Setting Research

Goal-setting theory postulates that goals are direct regulators of behavior. The emphasis is on conscious choice and control of behavior. Recent research in psychology suggests that goals can be activated outside of conscious control with the same effect on behavior. We critically discuss research on subconscious goal activation.

163-1 Working in Interdisciplinary Research Teams: Why Heterogeneity Matters
In an exploratory study of seven interdisciplinary research teams, the effects of functional heterogeneity were analyzed by means of quantitative and qualitative methods. Whereas high heterogeneity was found to impair team performance, qualitative analyses revealed reasons for this negative relation. Furthermore, strategies and behaviors facilitating interdisciplinary teamwork were identified.

Based on assumptions of social identity theory (Tajfel & Turner, 1986) and self-categorization theory (Turner, 1985) increased identity salience at the superordinate/subordinate group level was expected to influence perceptions of similarities among demographically diverse group members, group cohesion, and group performance. The results provided partial support for the anticipated relationships.

A three-wave longitudinal study of 314 short-term employees was conducted to test Morrison and Robinsons (1997) suggestions that justice perceptions moderate psychological contract breach effects. Using procedures recommended by Edwards (1991, 1996), we found that relations between psychological contract components and outcomes differed depending on justice perceptions.

In addition, once employees telework, the establishment of interaction between leaders and followers is associated with lower workfamily conflict.

184-27 Responding to Sexual Harassment Complaints: 
Effects of a Dissolved Workplace Romance on Decision-Making Standards

Two field experiments were conducted to examine effects of a dissolved workplace romance on raters responses to a sexual harassment complaint. Data from 475 employees provide support for an ethical decision-making framework as an explanation for how individuals make decisions about sexual harassment complaints that stem from prior workplace romances.

The role of nonself-report and self-report measures of working conditions as predictors of work-to-family conflict was examined. It was found that both types of measures predicted work-to-family conflict and that self-reports mediated the relationship between job demands and work-to-family conflict.

204-21 Effects of Service Climate, Attitudes, 
and Behaviors on the HR-Performance Relationship

We examine service climate, job attitudes, and behaviors as possible mechanisms for the HR practices and firm performance relationship in a sample of 22 supermarkets using data from store employees, store directors, and store performance measures. Results suggest HR practices, service climate, job attitudes, and behaviors are associated with performance.

Construct Validity and Factor Structure Analysis

This study examined the factor structure and construct validity of the Cultural Diversity Beliefs Scale. Confirmatory factor analyses, based on two independent samples, provide support for the three-factor solution originally suggested. In addition, correlational analyses indicated that the three factors were positively related to openness, self-efficacy, and attitudes about affirmative action.

204-24 Impact of Language Diversity on Team-Members Self-Feelings, Team Perceptions, and Individual Performance

In an experiment, we examined the impact of working with team members who intermittently spoke a foreign language (i.e., Linguistic-Ostracism) or consistently spoke English (i.e., Linguistic-Inclusion). Linguistically-ostracized participants felt more rejected, disliked their coworkers, and perceived lower team potency. Impact on performance depended on personality (extraversion) and work condition (collective/individual).
