Section Review 12.1 Key Terms Leadership  Management  Trait theories of leadership  Big Five personality framework Case Studies Avon Products Inc. Summary The chapter begins by discussing the difference between  leadership and management According to Robert House of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania  defines management as consisting of implementing the vision and strategy provided by  leaders, coordinating and staffing the organization, and handling day-to-day problems. In  contrast, leadership is the ability to influence a group towards the achievement of a vision  or set of goals. Leaders may emerge from within a group as well as by formal appointment  to lead a group. In early studies of leadership, management researchers explored which  traits  were  associated with effective leadership. By the 1990s, after numerous studies and analyses,  the best thing that could be said was that leaders differ from non-leaders. The predictive  validity of traits was drastically increased when they were organized along the Big Five  framework personality dimensions of extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness,  openness to experience, and emotional stability. Many of the traits that were associated  with effective leadership were found to be sub-dimensions of these larger traits. For  example, ambition and energy are part of extroversion and self-confidence is part of  emotional stability. More recently The Center for Creative Leadership surveyed 250  managers and found that traits they considered important for success were ethics, integrity,  and values. Respondents also believed that top leaders must command respect, behave  reliably, and be perceived as honest. Effective leaders are able to: formulate detailed plans,  create efficient organizational structures, oversee day-to-day operations, establish direction  by developing a vision of the future, and align people by communicating this vision and  inspiring them to overcome hurdles.
