Thestudy is based on a survey involving 64 secondary schools and 627teachers. Leadership style was measured in terms of relationship andinitiating structure organisational process was measured in terms ofteacherteacher interactions, principalteacher interactions, andperceived organisational effectiveness. MANOVA, ANOVA and ttestwere used to analyse the data. The results support the traditionalbelief that there is a strong relationship of leadership toorganisational process. Among the four leadership styles, thehigh relationship and high initiating structure type seemsto be most effective in terms of interpersonal interactions andperceived organisational effectiveness. The profiles of the fourleadership styles are quite different, giving a helpful pattern foradministrative practice.
