Management Styles and Leadership Behavior Within a Residence Life Program.
Moy, James Y. K.; Hales, Loyde W.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the leadership behavior of Residence Life staff members, the management styles of the organization and their relationship to each other. Staff members and students within the Residence Life Program at Ohio University comprised the sample used. Staff perceptions on the Profile on Organizational Characteristics (POC) were significantly different for each mode of responding. When the staff was classified into four leadership behavior quadrants by the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire (LBDQ), their perceptions of the organization "as it is" did not differ significantly across quadrants, but perceptions of personal behavior and of what the organization "should be" differed across quadrants. A 13-item bibliography is included. (Author)
