Implicit Measures in Leadership Research: What Leaders and Followers Really Think and Why It Matters

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference presentation/ephemera

Abstract

Presenter symposium chaired by Dr Darja Kragt
In recent years, it has been acknowledged that many phenomena of interest in organizational behavior operate outside employees’ complete awareness and control. The implicit processes are intuitive, spontaneous, unintentional, automatic, and sometimes unconscious. Although leadership scholars were among the earliest to discuss implicit processes (i.e., implicit theory of leader categorization), the use of implicit measures in leadership research is quite rare. The present symposium attempts to address this gap by showcasing an array of conceptual and empirical leadership studies that advocate for or utilize implicit construct measures. Two presentations will discuss the development and validation of new implicit measures to assess ILTs and leader identity. The third presentation reports a novel use of existing implicit measure of self-concept in followers and its impact on a range of important leadership and organizational outcomes. Finally, the fourth presentation will advance a new conceptualization of leader identity within an individual’s goal hierarchies. The symposium aims to inspire other researchers to consider implicit measures and provides guidance and advice on how to do so.
