Paper published in Frontiers in Psychology


Anna Barthel and Claudia Buengeler published a paper entitled “Servant versus directive leadership and promotability: does leader gender matter?” in Frontiers in Psychology. They show that leaders benefit from implementing servant leadership compared to directive leadership. Servant leaders were perceived as more effective, likable, and ultimately more promotable than directive leaders. These effects hold regardless of leader gender. According to the Journal Citation Reports, Frontiers in Psychology has a 2022 impact factor of 3.8. The full paper can be freely accessed here.
