Developing a Theory of Implicit Change Leadership

This study seeks to make a contribution to the literature and practice of change management by looking at the phenomenon from the lens of Implicit Leadership Theory (ILT). Although there is robust evidence on ILT, the theory assumes that leadership characteristics are relevant across situations. However, given the unique requirements of managing change, we propose that the characteristics of leaders during times of change will be unique. This study tests a Theory of Implicit Change Leadership that describes the schemas with regards to ideal behaviors of leaders implementing change. Building on the initial exploratory study, it seeks to quantitatively validate the schemas and establish the relationship of the congruence of these schemas with employees’ readiness for change.

  1. What are the schemas of Filipino workers regarding change leadership?
  2. Does congruence with change leadership schemas predict readiness for change?
