ASSESSING LEADERSHIP STYLES IN TERTIARY LEVEL EDUCATION

M. Masino

The University of the West Indies Open Campus (BARBADOS)
It has been argued that the best leadership style “is the one that maximizes productivity and satisfaction, and growth in all situations” (Blake, et. al.). Others insist that there is no single leadership style “because there exists no simple universal truths or principles that consistently explain organizational behavior” (Robbins, et. al.). The purpose of this research was to gather data and measure how tertiary education leaders approach their leadership styles within their department or institution. Research participants were asked to respond to a Survey based on the way the approach leadership within their department of institution.

The Survey Instrument was sent to participants in management and or leadership roles at various tertiary level institutions throughout the Caribbean for their feedback. Through Survey responses and the review of literature addressing the tenets of leadership styles, this research seeks to determine the preferred leadership styles of tertiary level administrators in various situations.
