Last Published:  07/31/19 10:05:33 AM (Central)
Short Title: Leadership and Autonomy
Responsible HRP Element: Human Factors and Behavioral Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
The aim is to investigate the following with respect to long duration, exploration teams:
(1) What leadership forms best enable team autonomy;
(2) What are the enablers (e.g., team climate, knowledge, behavior, attitudes)
to horizontal peer-to-peer leadership?;
(3) What is the role that personality occupies in predicting who is likely to take on particular
leadership roles and the form of leadership that emerges;
(4) How does this change across the team’s life span and autonomy
Research conducted with both ground based laboratory settings as well as field data collected from analogs is expected to lead to critical information which can support the development of necessary countermeasures for more effectively enabling LDDEM leadership roles for both ground and flight crews.
