Heilmann, Tobias; Reips, Ulf-Dietrich (2013). The mutual influence of technology and leadership behaviors. In: Bocarnea, Mihai C; Reynolds, Rodney A; Baker, Jason D. Online Instruments, Data Collection, and Electronic Measurements: Organizational advancements. Hershey: Information Science Reference, 292-310.

Abstract

The present book chapter focuses on e-leadership, reviewing and discussing the latest developments in new (e-)leadership conceptions, such as transformational leadership and others. The authors propose alternative, albeit well-proven measures (e.g., MLQ 5X Short, Bass & Avolio, 1990) and an e-leadership tool called Virtual Team Trainer (VTT; Reips & Ito, 2007). The VTT uses the Online Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire (OLBDQ; Reips & Heilmann, 2009), assessing the Ohio State Leadership styles consideration and initiating structure. Alongside personality tests and group process development units that were built from the Existential Mapping Process (EMP; Horowitz, 1985), the tool contains modules that help leaders and team members to identify their Ohio State leadership styles. The VTT relates the results of the self- and other-questionnaires regarding team structure, development, and modifications and improvement of leadership skills.

The VTT is available free for use via the iScience Server portal at http://iscience.eu.
