Managerial optimism and search
AbstractThis paper proposes and tests a model of the influence of managerial dispositional optimism on the propensity to search. The model developed in this article was tested using a business simulation exercise and survey method. Results show support for the positive influence of optimism on search; in addition, the relationship appears curvilinear.
