dc.description.abstractThis study analyses the competence gaps of lower-level managers in a typicalmanufacturing plant in Germany that had recently introduced a teamworkstructure. Results indicate that the managers have difficulties with their newleadership-related tasks. Higher levels of leadership competence are found to be associated with better acceptance as a manager by superiors, but not bysubordinates, better interaction with both subordinates and superiors, and withhigher job satisfaction. Finally, a quasi-experiment shows that a combination of workshops and individual coaching had measurable effects on leadershipcompetencies and partly improved identification with the managerial role. Interms of methodology, a new format of self-assessments is suggested for a morevalid measurement of competencies.en_US
