Twalib, MH.  Forthcoming.  AN INGRATIATORS QUANDARY: A CLOSER LOOK AT THE EFFECTS OF THE DIMENSION OF INGRATIATION ON THE TARGET. Abstract

The objective of this study was to find out which of the dimensions of ingratiation has more effect on the target person. Studies have indicated that some employees who succeeded in organizations were not necessarily the best ones for the company, but were those who were most skillful at flattering their superiors.Perhaps the most basic factor related to successful ingratiation is the specific tactic used to increase liking. Literature is unclear on which of the dimensions would yield more results or whether if they are used together will yield more results to the target person than individually.It was hypothesized that there is no significant difference in using any of the dimensions to the target person. The study further hypothesized that there is no difference on the effect of the dimensions whether used individually or jointly. The study used a descriptive survey of a population of 169employees responding to statements about their use of the three dimensions of ingratiation. Primary data was collected using self-administered structured questionnaires. Data was analyzed using one and two-way ANOVA and the response rate was 72.2%. The results showed that opinion conformity has the highest significant mean among the three strategies followed by other enhancement and lastly self-presentation.The findings of the study also indicated that the three strategies cannot be applied at one go. It is recommended that employees should ensure application of these ingratiation strategies one at a time. The paper suggests that more strategies can be considered in order to solve an ingratiators’ dilemma. These findings add significant value on both policy and practice.

Twalib, MH.  Forthcoming.  • Twalib, M.H. (2018). To Keep close or to Let Loose: Recipe for Sustainable Quality Dyad. . Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the recipe of sustainable quality dyad. Leaders are known to consciously and sub consciously form two groups; in-group and outgroup members.Studies have shown that members of the in-group work overtime and perform extra duties and in turn,get favours from the leaders including career mobility and access to information, among other favours.Literature is unclear on how these groups are formed and this paper embarked on finding out the recipe of the formation and sustainability of a quality dyad. It was hypothesised that being a male member, trust and competence are not recipesof a high quality relationship. The study used a descriptive survey of a population of 19 leaders were responding to questions about their 169 employeeswho report to them directly.Primary data was collected using self-administered structured questionnaires.122 pairs of leaders and their direct reports was the response rate(72.2%). Descriptive statistics were used to analyse the data.The hypothesis wastested using logistical regression technique. The results showed that competence and trust arethe recipe for a high quality relationship. Masculinity, on the other hand, was not a recipe for a sustainable quality dyadic relationship. It is recommended that employees should ensure high level trustworthiness and competence for them to be kept close by the leader. The paper suggests that more variables can be considered as recipes for the quality dyadic relationship. These findings add significant value on both policyand practice.

Twalib, MH.  Forthcoming.  Storm in My Comfort Zone. DBA Africa Management Review. Abstract

The objective of this study was to analyse different situations about incidences where people found it difficult to change on different situations.Change has always been uncomfortable; it takes courage and time to accept it. Many models have been developed to assist in change management including Kurt Lewin’s model of change. Other authors have also indicated the importance of embracing change when it is appropriate. This paper sheds light on real life events and situations where change is due and employees in institutions are uncomfortable with it. The paper describes the different behaviors exhibited by different individuals in resisting change. Data was collected through recordings, interviews conducted with both the change agents, and in some instances with change champions. The paper concludes by elaborating the importance of change and its successes. The incidences were collected from different institutions of higher learning in Kenya.
