This paper is about leadership styles. In particular, it investigates what kind of leadership young innovators favour.

Leadership preferences are studied in the context of transformational leadership covering transformational leadership, transactional leadership (including passive and active management by exception), rewarding, laissez-faire and authoritative leadership styles.

Methodology

Questionnaires. 297 Finnish university students completed a voluntary leadership behaviour questionnaire and an innovativeness scale.

Findings

The results indicate that receiving intellectual stimulation from their leader is more important to young innovators than it is to their peers but the former are also less comfortable with active management by exception.
