Abstract:Based on the nonverbal leadership literature, it has been hypothesized that hand gestures and body gestures have an influence on both perceived meeting effectiveness and pro-active behaviour of their followers. The research is focused on video-observations of team meetings, consisting of fine-grained codings of non-verbal behaviour displayed during the meetings, as well as several surveys that have been filled-out by team-members within the teams that have been recorded. The data consisted of 20 leaders and 192 followers which are employed in a large public organization. As a result, one correlation has been found, this correlation implies that upward palms gestures have a negative influence on the level of pro-activity of the followers. In the discussion section the outcomes of the analysis were discussed and suggestions will be given for future research.
