Group Psychology on Leadership - Dictionary of Arguments
Haslam I 189
Leadership/groupthink/Group psychology: Matie Flowers (1977)(1) examined leadership style and found that groups with directive leaders suggested fewer potential solutions and used less available information when making decisions. Decision-making procedures were also shown to be sometimes predictive of groupthink symptoms. For example, when decision-making processes were limited (e.g., by allowing majority decisions rather than insisting they be unanimous), decision quality suffered (Kameda and Sugimori, 1993)(2). >Groupthink/psychological theories, >GroupthinkJanis.
