Performance Through Measuring Leader's Profiles: An Empirical Study
Source: University of Tampere
In the Finnish work life it is quite typical in the engineering and expertise companies, the oldest or the most experienced professionals to have traditionally been taken into the leaders' position. This is natural when organizations grow and the middle-management becomes necessary for some reasons. However, the expertise position in profession does not automatically mean the same person having good skills in leadership. This phenomenon is recognized both in earlier studies and in a research program carried out by authors since 2004. Anyhow, the skills in leadership can be taught successfully to leaders and managers in duty.
