Chapter 2: Refractive Thinking and the Influence of Religion and Religiosity on Leadership Practices by Dr. Joe Hage

Religion and religiosity have been major factors in society for centuries because religious beliefs shape the values, conduct, ethics, and morals of organizational leaders to a large degree. However, faith and religion are often avoided in the workplace. The Hage (2013) quantitative correlation study consisted of examining the relationship among religion, religiosity, and leadership practices among Christian and Muslim organizational leaders in Lebanon. Statistical analyses showed a significant relationship between religion and the five Kouzes and Posner leadership dimensions; whereas no relationship was found between religiosity and these dimensions. This chapter offers readers a roadmap to thinking beyond the box when conducting quantitative research.

The Refractive Thinker series provides doctoral scholars with a collaborative opportunity to promote and publish their work in a peer reviewed publication, which meets the university standard. Our goal is to provide an affordable outlet for scholars that supports the tremendous need for dynamic dialogue and innovation while providing an additional clout and recognition for each contributing author. Unlike most academic books that merely define research, The Refractive Thinker offers unique application of research methodologies from the perspective of multiple authors each offering a chapter based on their specific expertise.
