New leaders face a challenging task when they take charge of their teams. They have to determine how best to guide the work process and they must understand how their behaviors will affect the members of their team. This research examines how a newly-assigned team leader's status moderates subordinates' reactions to different leadership styles to affect assessments of the leader's self-confidence and effectiveness, and how this impacts team performance. Across two experimental studies, results demonstrate that low-status leaders are viewed as more effective when they use a participative style, and this relationship is mediated by perceptions of self-confidence. In addition, teams whose leaders are viewed more favorably perform better on a complex group task. Discussion focuses on implications for both theory and practice.
