Abstract

The findings from this research project will prove interesting for anyone involved in the development of managers/leaders in times of change. The basic findings were as follows: The majority of behaviours perceived as “bad” were located in the self management quadrant with descriptions such as “bully”, “lack of respect”, “mood swings, “selfish”, and “inconsistent” appearing most frequently. These “bad” behaviours produced negative feelings with “angry”, “anxious”, “unsettled”, “depressed”, “frustrated”, and “de-motivated” appearing most frequently. In contrast the vast majority of behaviours perceived as “good” were located in the relationship management quadrant with descriptions such as “empowerment”, “complementary”, “good communication skills”, “visionary”, “encouraging”, “charismatic”, inspirational” and “leading by example” appearing most frequently. These “good” behaviours produced positive feeling with “wanting to do more than is expected”, “motivated”, “inspired”, ”loyal”, “valued”, “supported” and “confident” appearing most frequently. Discussions centred on these finding will form the basis to review current and new leadership development programmes.
