The following article is now available online.
Cerne, M., Maric, M., Dimovski, V., Penger, S., & Skerlavaj, M. (forthcoming): Congruence of leader self-perceptions and follower perceptions of authentic leadership: Understanding what authentic leadership is and how it enhances employees’ job satisfaction, Australian Journal of Management.
We propose and empirically test a multilevel model of cross-level interactions between leader self-perceptions (team level) and follower perceptions of authentic leadership on job satisfaction. Data from 24 supervisors and 171 team members were used. Applying hierarchical linear modelling, we found that follower perceptions of authentic leadership predict employee job satisfaction. We also found support for the interaction effect of leader self-perceptions and follower perceptions of authentic leadership in predicting job satisfaction, integrating the leader- and follower-centric perspectives of authentic leadership. Polynomial regression analysis further supported the fact that the congruence between leader self-perceptions and follower perceptions of authentic leadership is beneficial and that both need to be present at high levels to produce the most beneficial results in terms of followers’ job satisfaction.

Publication on management innovation in EMR June 29, 2013Posted by mihaskerlavaj in innovation, knowledge management.

Again, I am proud of our little team who made it to another prominent research publication venue, that is European Management Review. We have published a paper on a most promissing topic of management innovation: ČERNE, Matej, JAKLIČ, Marko, ŠKERLAVAJ, Miha. Management innovation in focus : the role of knowledge exchange, organizational size, and IT system development and utilization. European management review, 2013.
Below is the abstract.
This study aims to design and test a model examining the antecedents of management innovation at the organizational level. We propose internal knowledge exchange as a crucial predictor of management innovation and examine the mediating effect of IT system development, as well as the moderating effect of organizational size in the examined relationship. We test the model using structural equation modeling and hierarchical moderated regression analysis on data gathered from 604 firms in three countries: Slovenia, Spain, and South Korea. The results indicate a crucial role of knowledge exchange for management innovation, as this link is positive, very strong and significant in all three countries. In addition, our study provided evidence that knowledge exchange results in management innovation through developed IT systems that enable the information and knowledge to flow within an organization, as well as that the relationship between knowledge exchange and management innovation is hindered by firms’ size.
