In a perfect world, managers' authority and engagement would reflect their positions in the organizational hierarchy, rising as people climbed up the ranks. When the researchers mapped the responses that more than 3,000 managers gave to a battery of questions about their sense of responsibility and their actual authority, they saw a world filled with underengaged and surprisingly powerless managers. Worse, they identified unexpected hot spots - and dangerous vacuums - of power.

The researchers contend that stereotypes affect judgment when the qualifications of the minorities and women are ambiguous. The occupations considered for the study are women's college president and police chief. The study demonstrates that women sucessful in male domains are considered less competent. *DISCRIMINATION in employment *HUMAN error *CAREER development *JOB performance *WOMEN -- Employment *MEN -- Employment COLLEGE presidents POLICE chiefs

This paper examines individuals’ reactions to the prospect of gaining or losing status in groups. The results of three experiments provide evidence that individuals attach greater value to status when recalling the risk of status loss than when recalling the potential for status gain (Experiment 1), are willing to pay more to avoid a status loss than to achieve a status gain (Experiment 1), and put forth greater effort when striving to prevent status loss than when striving to gain status (Experiment 2). Finally, individuals who risk losing status allocate more resources toward personal status concerns (and away from group interests and potential monetary gain) than do individuals who have a chance of gaining status (Experiment 3). We discuss the implications of this research both in terms of individuals’ psychological experience of their status, as well as status attainment and maintenance concerns in groups
