ABSTRACT
We develop a theoretical framework that links charismatic leadership to the extensiveness of one's social network and then predicts that such network extensiveness can subsequently be related to an individual's motivation to set challenging personal career goals. To assess the generalizability and boundary conditions of our theory, we test it in two samples of senior managers: one from the United States (an individualistic culture) and the second from China (a collectivistic culture). In part 1 of the study, we find that charismatic leadership is positively related to social network extensiveness and that culture moderates this relationship. In part 2, we find that social network extensiveness is positively related to the setting of challenging career goals. This latter finding holds up in both the individualistic and the collectivistic cultures.
