"The purpose of this survey study was to test the Full Range of Leadership Theory (FRLT) by comparing the Multi-factor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) ratings of face-to-face (FtF) followers with the MLQ ratings of virtual followers. The information Richness Theory and the Hyper-personal Communication Theory were used to generate opposing hypotheses for the dependent variables in this study. A total of 88 respondent raters completed the MLQ for their respective leaders. Both parametric and non-parametric tests confirmed that when virtual and FtF followers rated the same group of project leaders, virtual followers rated these leaders higher in several categories than FtF followers rated these leaders. Virtual project team members rated these leaders higher than FtF project team members rated these leaders for 3 transformational variables, 1 transactional variable, and all of the MLQ outcome variables"--Abstract, page iii.
