Abstract

This study aimed at examining the upward influence tactics employed by subordinates toward their immediate superiors (the leader) in relation to the cohesiveness of a given group, leadership behavior on the part of the leader, and leadership behavior on the part of the group's top leader. The survey involved a sample of 120 nurses. Each nurse was asked to complete a questionnaire, which was prepared on the basis of an earlier preliminary study. The results of the group survey were as follows: (1) A nurse (the subordinate) generally gave play to the tactics of rationality and enthusiasm vis-a-vis a democratically inclined head nurse (the immediate superior); (2) coalition behavior was widely practiced in groups that were highly cohesive, while higher authority was employed vis-a-vis a democratically inclined top head nurse (the top leader); (3) the above-mentioned actions employing tactics of influence [(1) to (2)] had, in turn, an effect on the degree of response on the part of the head nurse (the leader) and on the ex post factor relationship between the two parties (nurse and head nurse).
