Please follow these steps in completing the surveys:
1. The following surveys you can complete yourself at any time, but definitely before December 15, 2001 (sooner if possible):
2. The Personality Survey - Other Ratings need to becompleted by two significant others (spouse or partner, family member, close friend). Your significant others need to complete the survey before December 15, 2001 (sooner if possible). It should only take your significant other 15 minutes to complete this survey. Instruct your two significant others to complete this survey by logging online at this address (www.studies-online.org/MAN5245/persoth) and having them enter your username as "username1" and "username2" and "other" for password (for example, if you username is "judge", your two significant others should use "judge1" and "judge2" for username, and "other" for password).
3. The Leadership Survey - Other Ratings are to be completed by at least three and as many as six individuals who are in a good position to appraise your leadership style. Typically, these people are individuals with whom you have worked most closely-they can be supervisors, coworkers, or students with whom you have worked on team projects. The key is to choose people who have had a good opportunity to observe you at work. Please remember that the results you obtain are only as good as the people who rate you. Many participants have commented that if they would have known how potentially useful the feedback is, they would have chosen their raters more carefully. So, choose your raters carefully-do not choose on the basis of who you think will rate you favorably, rather choose on the basis of who is in the best position to evaluate you and whose judgment you trust. You will only see these results collectively, so you will not be able to identify your raters individually. Instruct your 3-6 raters complete this survey by logging online at this address (www.studies-online.org/MAN5245/leadoth) and having them enter your username and "other" for password. This survey will only take each rater 10 minutes to complete.
4. The Job Satisfaction Survey - Other is to be completed by as many individuals who work in your work unit as possible. For example, if 20 employees work in your department or work unit, strive to have all 20 complete the survey. If you work in a rather small area or department, you may want to broaden the number of individuals who complete the survey. The key is to be able to provide you with feedback on the job satisfaction levels of employees in your department, work unit, or organization, so choose who should complete the survey with this in mind. Just remember, it usually takes 10 or more surveys to obtain reliable results. Instruct the employees to complete this survey by logging online at this address (www.studies-online.org/MAN5245/jsoth) and having them enter your username and "other" for password. This survey will only take each rater 10 minutes to complete.
