A Study of Principal Leader Behavior and Contrasting Organizational Environments.
Feitler, Fred C.
This study examined existing relationships between the leader behaviors of elementary school principals and the organizational processes of their schools. T-tests were used to determine significant relationships between leader behaviors (measured by the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire-Form XII) and contrasting school typologies (described by the Profile of a School instrument.) The sample was composed of 23 schools and 412 teachers. Four leader behaviors -- tolerance of freedom, consideration, integration, and tolerance of uncertainty -- were found to be significantly higher for schools having participative group organizational processes than for schools described as having more authoritative processes. Implications for organization development and research are discussed. (Author)
