Workgroup Gender Diversity and Charismatic Leadership: Asymmetric Effects Among Men and Women
A laboratory study was conducted to examine how gender team diversity influences men and womenÂ´s charismatic relationships with an elected group leader. We examined individualsÂ´ charismatic relationships with their leaders when working in groups varying in gender composition. Results supported the argument that gender diversity provides a context that facilitates the emergence of charismatic leadership. Furthermore, the effect of gender diversity on charismatic relationships is asymmetric, being more marked in the case of men than that of women. Our results question the similarity-attraction hypothesis and contribute to the incipient follower-centric approach to leadership.
