Resource description

Taking as their basis the argument that leaders substantially affect organizational outcome the authors seek a better understanding of the leader/strategy/environment interface by looking not only at what leaders do, but also at why they do it. It is argued that the assessment of a leader's preoccupations will make for more effective human resource planning by facilitating the match between leader and organization. Unfortunately, work on the accurate assessment of a leader's preoccupations is still in its enfancy. To fill the gap, this paper proposes a research methodology based on the clinical concept of transference, ie. repetitive, consistent patterns of interaction which are unique to each individual. The Strategic Relationship Interview Method (-SRIM- a derivative of the Core Conflictual Relationship Theme Method as developed by Luborsky and his collaborators) is introduced as a relatively simple way to capture the essence of leadership
