Abstract

This study examined the relationship between the achieved status of the leader and productivity in group problem solving of 27 experimental groups, which consisted of the principal and three teachers, with nine of the principals having high achieved status, nine moderate achieved status, and nine low achieved status. The task consisted of both analysis and synthesis. Groups having principals with high achieved status were the least productive in the analyzing phase. The achieved status of the principal and group productivity were found to be directly related in the synthesizing phase. The results indicate that high achieved status in a leader has dysfunctional, as well as functional consequences.
