MetadataShow full item record
The main focus of this study is to examine the relationship between different leadership styles and outcome variables. The personality trait extraversion of followers is taken into account. To examine this, a sample of 50 participants, managers and followers, in a hotel in the United States filled out a questionnaire. The results show that the personality trait extraversion has a relation with the outcome variables. Followers with an extravert personality show less burnout and more job satisfaction. Leadership styles are shown to have an effect on the outcome variables as well. The leadership styles consideration, inspiration and initiating structure all have a positive relation with job satisfaction. Lower burnout is experienced more under followers that have a structural or considerate leader. Extraversion interacts with the leadership consideration and inspiration for burnout but not for job satisfaction.
