Abstract:The question of this thesis deals with specific behaviors of effective leadership. In addition to the employment of the well known and often used MLQ we introduce a video based methodology within a German subsidiary of a global health care company. Followers and experts scored the behavior of the focal leader and this data was compared to a sample of highly effective Dutch leaders. In total, three different methods were used, including a video observation analysis, surveys (leader and followers) and expert ratings, to assess the leader from different angles. Laissez-faire leadership, transactional leadership, transformational leadership, emotional intelligence and values congruence are hypothesized and tested in conjunction with leadership effectiveness. Results show that transactional leadership, transformational leadership and emotional intelligence are significantly related to leadership effectiveness. With reference to the results of value congruence between the leader and his followers, only significant value congruence for conservation was found in this case study.
