|Abstract: ||With increasing numbers of higher educational institutions in Taiwan, how to become more efficient through innovative operation has become a critical issue. This paper studies the “Big-5” personal traits, leadership styles, and their relationship to innovative operation. Conducted with a sample of universities in Taiwan, the study analyzes 194 professors and lecturers from three universities by means of a questionnaire. The dimensions are divided into three parts: personal traits, leadership styles, and innovative operations. The study utilizes factor analysis, variable analysis, and correlation analysis. The two main findings are, first, that traits of extraversion and agreeableness have a positive relationship to higher perception of innovative operation in the university. Second, transformational leadership should combine with transactional leadership without management-by-exception passive (active participant style) for more efficient innovative operation. A discussion of the key research findings and some suggested directions for future research are provided. Because of Taiwan’s joining the WTO and an increasing number of universities, innovative operations have become a crucial issue for survival in a competitive higher-education market. Extant research has indicated that organizational operations involve primarily top managers and their subordinates, although some studies have shown that institutions of higher education often fail to implement innovative operation because of a lack of participation by teachers . Because of this finding, understanding the personal traits of teachers and managers’ leadership styles will be crucial for universities which seek innovative operation.|
