The Facial Displays of Leadership: A Systematic Review of the Literature

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Despite the emerging literature converging on a greater understanding of general non-verbal displays of leadership, there remains scant work exploring the role of the face in this area. A systematic review of the literature was carried out that highlighted specific facial displays that communicated leadership traits throughout our immediate social group. The role of the smile and the frown, the pupil-to-brow distance, facial width-to-height ratio as well as structural cues conveying maturity and gender all play a role in the transmission of leadership. This review also sets the foundation for the introduction of the remaining contributions to the book, which, taken together, provides a platform that addresses the surprising paucity of work in this area and in doing so enables the reader to better understand the crucial role that facial displays have in the conveyance of this fundamental social process.
