focus on organizational culture. Therefore, the survey included some screening items

regarding the level at which the respondents were reporting. In particular, respondents

were prompted to report what level they referred to as they were completing the

questionnaire (e.g. organization, group, department). Only the respondents who reported

organizational subculture rather than the overall culture that organizational leaders

257 coworker responses (Average N=2.62 per focal).

In the resulting sample, the predominant percentage of focal respondents were

between 26-35 years (73.5%), female participants accounted for 26.50% of focal

respondents, 99% of the participants were employed full-time during the data collection

period in a variety of occupations as follows: 18.2% in financial services/banking

companies, 14.3% in consulting/government relations companies, another 16.9% in high

tech companies, 10.40% in government, 10.4% in manufacturing (the remainder were

employed in various types of companies, each accounting for less that 10% of the

sample). Respondents had average company tenure of 3.71 years (SD=3.40) and average

job tenure of 2.30 years (SD=1.73), 37% reported that they worked less than 50% of their

time as part of a work team. The majority of respondents categorized themselves as

White/Caucasian (61.7%), followed by Asian (11.70%), Indian Subcontinental/Pacific

Islander (10.60%), African American (10.6%), Hispanic/Latino (5.30%). The
