Marian Ruderman, Cathleen Clerkin, and Katya Fernandez partnered with Margarida Truninger and Debra Cancro to conduct a study at CCL, specifically within CCL’s LDP program. The study focused on better understanding the relationships between vocal delivery (using the AI-informed, voice-analytic technology, VoiceVibes) and leader competencies (using 360 assessments) and two leadership outcomes: leader emergence and effectiveness. Results indicated vocal delivery was positively associated with leader emergence, but not leader effectiveness. In contrast, leader competency was positively associated with leader effectiveness, but not leader emergence. A detailed description of the study and results were published recently in The Leadership Quarterly in an article titled, “Sounds like a leader: An ascription-actuality approach to examining leader emergence and effectiveness.”
