Person-environment fit: project leader-stakeholder relationships in a complex project environment
Mazur, Alicia, Pisarski, Anne, & Ashkanasy, Neal (2011) Person-environment fit: project leader-stakeholder relationships in a complex project environment. In 25th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference: The Future of Work and Organisations, 7-9 December 2011, Wellington, New Zealand.
In this paper, we develop a conceptual model to explore the perceived complementary congruence between complex project leaders and the demands of the complex project environment to understand how leaders’ affective and behavioural performance at work might be impacted by this fit. We propose that complex project leaders high in emotional intelligence and cognitive flexibility should report a higher level of fit between themselves and the complex project environment. This abilities-demands measure of fit should then relate to affective and behavioural performance outcomes, such that leaders who perceive a higher level of fit should establish and maintain more effective, higher quality project stakeholder relationships than leaders who perceive a lower level of fit.
