Identity Strategies for the Personal Development of Managerial Elites in Romania


Florentina Scarneci-Domnisoru

The book explains managerial performance through self-identity aspects. It proposes identity instruments for the evaluation, prognosis and growth of managerial performance. A qualitative study was performed on Romanian managers to discover the identity conditionings of managerial potential (a grounded theory study). Also, a quantitative pilot study was performed on Romanian managers and non-managers for refining the theoretic model of identity conditionings of the managerial potential. The book can be a useful tool for those trying to use mixed research methods within complex studies, for those who aim to study the identity of managers and to explain and make prognoses about managerial potential and managerial performance from an identity point of view.

I am respectfully asking you to please help me in my project by filling out this questionnaire. It will be distributed to both people who are managers and to people that are not managers. Both categories are equally important for my study (I am convinced that the two categories are different, just I am convinced that it cannot be said that one category is more “valuable” than the other). My goal is to find out if there are differences of an identity nature between the two and what such differences might be. Therefore, through this questionnaire, I will try to find out what you are like, how you think and act, what experiences you have had and what events have shaped your character.

You will be presented with simple and clear questions which you shouldn’t have any trouble answering, they are not to...
