Leuphana University of LA¼neburg, Germany, and the University of Minnesota, USA, hosted the international symposium on Personality at Work in LA¼neburg. The symposium focussed on the role of personality traits in everyday work settings. Invited experts from academia and industry from around the world with diverse backgrounds in the applied sciences, industrial- and organizational psychology, business administration, and economics presented and discussed current research findings on personality traits in work settings as well as on state-of-the-art practices. Selected manuscripts from the symposium on Personality at Work are included in this book as readings in applied organizational behavior from the LA¼neburg symposium. These are their topics: - From groups to teams: Assessing individual differences in preparedness for team work, - Using SOMC to induce empirically-based decision rules in human resource management, - The influence of cultural values on entrepreneurial intentions: A comparison between British and German students, - Impact of emotional intelligence on leadership effectiveness, success, and job satisfaction, - Networking: Theoretical foundations and construct validityCovey (1997) presented a theory of how emotional intelligence is used to express leadership. ... But this does not fit todaya#39;s needs, as todaya#39;s workforce does not accept the autocratic style adopted by leaders. ... The transformational/ transactional leadership model (Boss, 1985; Boss aamp; Avolio, 1990, 1995) and the ability model of Mayer and Salovey (1997) provide a basis for examining this relationship.
