Comparison Matrix Paper
The focus of this paper was to use the matrix to compare two empirical articles, Leadership Behaviors and Subordinate Resilience written by Harland, Harrison, Jones & Reiter-Palmon and Initial Assessment and Validation of an Instrument to Measure Student Perceptions of Leadership Skills, written by Zula, Yarrish & Christensen. The articles were based on research questions the authors wanted to find answers to. In order to discover the answers the researchers had to use various methods to ascertain the best results. The authors used the method of surveys to gain the answers they were searching for. Purpose of Study
According to Harland, Harrison, Jones, and Reiter-Palmon (2005) the principle of their study was to assess the relationship between leader behaviors and subordinate resilience. The purpose of the study conducted by Zula, Yarrish, and Christensen (2010) was to investigate the possibility of creating a tool that can be used to measure student awareness of leadership using the five areas of leadership development. Research Questions
Harland et al. (2005), research questions consisted of (1) if the transformational leadership dimensions and the transactional leadership dimension would be positively linked with employee resilience? (2) If the transactional leadership dimensions and the non-leader dimension would not be positively linked with subordinate resilience before or after controlling for employee confidence? The research questions Zula et al. (2010) asked were (1) Can a tool for measuring student perceptions of leadership be developed that reveals correct content from the initial dimensions identified in the text? (2) What are the verification data for a newly developed measure of student perceptions of leadership tool? Literature Review
Harland et al. (2005) Literature Review was organized by beginning with a short story detailing the leadership of the captain...
