Resumen

La sub-representación de mujeres en roles de liderazgo en México está bien documentada. Esta investigación cuantitativa fue diseñada para medir expectativas sobre lideres efectivos de participantes de género femenino y masculino. La escala de liderazgo transformacional y transaccional de Podsakoff et al. (1990) fue utilizada. Se llevaron a cabo Análisis Factorial Exploratorio y pruebas t de muestras independientes. Los resultados sugieren que los participantes de género masculino y femenino asignan similares niveles de importancia al rol del líder en inspirar una visión compartida entre sus seguidores. Además, las mujeres en la muestra atribuyen menor importancia que sus contrapartes hombres al rol del líder en trabajar a través de divisiones organizacionales y en establecer altas expectativas de desempeño. Se discuten limitaciones, implicaciones, y áreas de futura investigación.
