Differences between generational cohort, conflict management style, and leadership style of managers in healthcare administration

by Johnson, Nancy L., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2014, 129 pages; 3641218


The results of this quantitative study suggest differences between generational cohort and leadership style, but not between generational cohort and conflict management style. The sub questions provide further evidence that suggests a statistically significant difference between generational cohort in the human resources leadership orientation, and statistically significant differences between participants born 1961 to 1980 (GenXers) and those born 1981 to 2000 (Millenials). The one-way MANOVA results suggest rejecting the null hypothesis that there are no significant differences between generational cohort, leadership style, and conflict management style, as there was a statistically significant difference in leadership orientation between generational cohorts, although the difference between generational cohorts on the combined conflict management style dependent variables was not statistically different. There was no statistically significant evidence to suggest a difference between generational cohort and conflict management style.
