Multiple intelligences, leadership, and androgyny
This research examined the relationship between multiple intelligences, leadership, androgyny, and behavioural flexibility. More specifically, practical, emotional, and social intelligence were investigated as they relate to the task-oriented and person-oriented components of leadership. The roles of androgyny and behavioural flexibility in relation to the intelligences and leadership were also examined. Androgynous individuals were found to be higher on social intelligence, and they were more likely to report using both initiating structure and consideration in their leadership style, to have task-oriented and person-oriented behavioural flexibility, and to score higher on both task-oriented leadership ability and person-oriented leadership ability.
