«Vertical» Arrangement of the Space of Managers’ Business Communication Styles

Abstract: 

The paper presents the results of a study of «vertical» arrangement of the space of business communication between managers of a business company. Using the Business Communication Styles research technique (BCS), this study examined the preferences of style components, as reflected in three concepts («I», my style; style features of a subjectively suitable leader; style features of a subjectively suitable subordinate). The study demonstrates the following: 1) managers’ business communication styles prominently feature most style components; 2) in respect to all components of business communication styles, there is a marked inter-individual variability; 3) a holistic working space (space of business communication) is formed in the process of interaction between subjects working collaboratively in the management hierarchy (interaction between higher-ranking leaders – leaders – subordinates); 4) different components of business communication styles play a different role in the formation and structuring of this working space (communication space).
