Leadership Adaptation and Traits in Nepalese Police Forces
Shrestha, Thakur Mohan
International Journal of Education and Literacy Studies, v3 n3 p1-23 Jul 2015
Recently, the role of leadership has been considered as one of the crucial factors for the success of any organization. However, what constitutes the effective leaders and what is the status of leaderships is still a subject of study. Hence, this research article is carried out with a mixed method. Based on the evaluation of 7 leadership styles, Bass and Avolio (1994)'s "5Is" behaviors, 49 traits, and 28 affecting elements for the development of police officers in Nepal, this study has used a survey questionnaire from 1111(N) and in-depth interview from 21(N) respondents from all the districts of Nepal. The findings of the study display that people are expecting a lot from police administration for adaptation of transformational leadership followed by participative/democratic, authentic and strategic models which were rated with highest ratings respectively. The trait status does not seem sound since the negative traits seem dominant with highest rating-"moderately to mostly", whereas the majority of positive traits are rated with "a little to moderately". Moreover, the transformational leadership behaviour is dealt with "a little to moderately", which needs to be improved.
