Leadership Competencies as Perceived by the Leaders and Their Subordinates in Kuwaiti Public and Private Sectors

Auther : Dr. Othman M. Al-Kheder

     The aim of this study is to identify the generic leadership competencies needed for leadership positions as perceived by the leaders and their subordinates in the public sector and leaders in the private sector in Kuwait. In addition, it aims at identifying the relative importance of these competencies for each group, and whether there are any differences in ranking these competencies between the leaders in the public sector and their subordinates. The study used 627 Kuwaitis working in Kuwait (387 males and 240 females), out of which 446 working in the public sector (104 leaders and 206 subordinates), and 181 in the private sector (104 leaders and 77 subordinates). Each group ranked the relative importance of 40 leadership competencies presented to them by the researcher. The results showed that there are 12 competencies perceived by the three groups as the most important competencies for leaders. These competencies are: Self-confidence; Trustworthiness; Taking decision in the right time; Adaptability; Commitment; Accurate self-assessment; Planning; Influencing others; Emotional awareness; Self-control; Change catalyst; and Achievement drive. No significant differences were found between the ranking of the leaders in the public sectors and their counterparts in the private sector, nor between the ranking of the leaders in the public sector and their subordinates.
