Background: Due to the importance of university management, special attention to the managers' personality characteristics and providing suitable solutions in this area are necessary. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between personality characteristics and participatory decision-making, and performance of educational managers of Kerman University of Medical Sciences.

Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive-analytical study, all managers of Kerman University of Medical Sciences were enrolled. The NEO Five-factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) was used to assess personality characteristics, participatory decision-making questionnaire was used to assess the participatory decision-making, and the academic score evaluation checklist was used to evaluate the performance of faculty members. Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate linear regression was used for data analysis.

Results: There was a positive and significant relationship between personality characteristics and performance of managers (r=0.76, P<0.001) and also between participatory decision-making and performance of managers (R=0.498, P<0.001). The components of personality characteristics such as excitation, conscience, and independent thinking and components of participatory decision- making such as inviting employees to comment, sharing knowledge, and consulting could predict the managers’ performance.

Conclusion: Paying more attention to the personality characteristics of managers and providing an appropriate basis for participatory decision-making makes managers more committed to the organization and creates a suitable environment for their better performance in the organization.

Keywords: Personality Characteristics, Participatory Decision-making, Performance, Educational Managers, Kerman
