Effects of Two Styles of Leadership on Participants Perception of Basic Organizational Hierarchical Needs in a Simulated Decision-Making Setting.
Willerman, Marvin
The purpose of this study was to determine if basic organizational hierarchical needs (BOHN) help govern the decisionmaking behavior of elementary school principals, and if these needs can be influenced by an immediate administrator. Three groups of graduate students were placed in a simulated setting, indoctrinated in the principal's role, and assigned superintendents with different leadership styles. Support was discovered for the BOHN concept and the underlying prepotency and need satiation theory. Results of Scheffe's comparisons indicate that only effective superintendents influenced the principal's BOHN operating level and differentially affected task- and human relations-oriented principals.
