dc.description.abstract Personality characteristics as predictors for managers’ readiness to change. The purpose of this study was to establish the degree to which change readiness can be predicted by certain personality dimensions. A sample of 115 managers took part in the study. As a result of the multi- dimensional nature of the construct readiness for change, the prediction was administered through a canonical correlation. In this instance change readiness (criteria) was presented in the form of three separate measurements i.e. California Psychological Inventory (CPI)), Reaction to Change Inventory (RTC) and the Perceptions of Organisational Change Inventory (POC). The scales of the Jung Personality Questionnaire (JPQ) and a Locus of Control Inventory served as predictors in the study. The results of the study indicate that it is indeed possible to predict change readiness on the basis of personality analysis. en
