Evaluating the team leader: does teachers’ personality influence their perceptions?

Using data from 249 teachers belonging to 37 teams within 11 school communities, this study examines the extent to which the personality of teachers is related to their perceptions of transformational leadership of their team leader (assumed similarity). Furthermore the question if similarity between personality of the teacher and the team leader leads to a stronger perception of transformational leadership (similarity attraction) is tested with a part of this dataset (117 teachers, 15 team leaders and 11 school communities). Results revealed that there is a positive relationship between extraversion and perception of transformational leadership. Moreover similarity between teachers and team leaders in terms of extraversion leads to a stronger perception of transformational leadership.
