The open defense was opened by the chair for the board of examiners, the assessment board, and the promoter to give questions for an hour. With a dissertation entitled “Spirituality in the Workplace and Ethical Leadership: A Mediating Model of Personal Ethics Moderation and Pressure to Achieve Results”, Andriyani, SE., M.M. answers the questions convincingly that she succeeds to achieve “very satisfying” predicate.
For additional information, Dr. Andriyani, SE., M.M., aims to explore spiritual relationships in the workplace as an antecedent of ethical leadership, analyze the influence of personal ethical mediation on the influence of spirituality at work on ethical leadership, and analyze the effect of moderating pressure. Using a sample of 143 packages consisting of 143 leaders and 745 members of 15 organizations from various regions in Indonesia, the results showed that spirituality at work had a significant and positive effect on ethical leadership. Personal ethics are unable to explain the mediating mechanism of spirituality in the workplace on ethical leadership. Furthermore, the pressure to achieve results shows its role in moderating the indirect influence of spirituality at work on ethical leadership through personal ethics. Under pressure to achieve high results, the indirect effect of spirituality at work has weakened on ethical leadership and vice versa. Personal ethics that do not appear on the mediating effect are activated when the pressure to achieve high results occurs. Nevertheless, Dr. Andriyani, M.M. suggests future researchers use confirmation measurements and self-report as a step in reducing social desirability bias.
Dr. Andriyani, M.M., officially holds the 4853rd doctorate who passed the examination at UGM and the 288th who graduated at FEB UGM. At the close of the agenda, T. Hani Handoko, M.B.A., Ph.D. congratulated and advised to increase productivity in academic careers and always maintain the ethics of the place of work and UGM as an alma mater. (RP))
