Liderança Ética, Relacionamento Líder-Seguidor e Desempenho: um Estudo em Uma Empresa de Telecomunicações Outros Idiomas

ID:
40971
Resumo:
Objetivo: Analisar a influência da liderança ética sobre o relacionamento líder-seguidor e suas consequências para o desempenho individual, o comprometimento com metas de trabalho e a cidadania organizacional. Originalidade/lacuna/relevância/implicações: Apesar de a ética na liderança ser, em tese, propulsora de consequências positivas no contexto do trabalho, sua associação com o desempenho e atitudes relevantes no ambiente empresarial, como o comprometimento com metas, ainda não foi evidenciada empiricamente. A presente pesquisa contribui para o preenchimento dessa lacuna, permitindo avançar o conhecimento sobre ética e liderança no Brasil. Principais aspectos metodológicos: A pesquisa foi realizada em uma empresa multinacional de telecomunicações, com uma amostra de 161 vendedores de lojas e 15 gerentes responsáveis por unidades de vendas localizadas na cidade do Rio de Janeiro. A análise estatística dos dados contou com o auxílio do software SPSS, através do qual foram realizadas regressões múltiplas entre as variáveis estudadas. Síntese dos principais resultados: Os resultados corroboram as proposições sobre os benefícios da liderança ética, tendo sido observada uma associação entre a ética do líder, a qualidade do relacionamento estabelecido com seus subordinados e o desempenho no trabalho. Principais considerações/conclusões: A pesquisa sugere que a ética na atuação dos líderes parece ter implicações positivas sobre a produtividade no trabalho, por meio da construção de um melhor relacionamento com seus subordinados. É possível recomendar ações específicas em programas de desenvolvimento de lideranças, a fim de potencializar o debate sobre dilemas éticos, condutas e modelos de atuação.
