Keywords:Leadership, Leadership style, Authoritative, Facilitative, Democratic, Situational.
The study aimed to assess the leadership styles adopted by the employees of the Philippine Rice Research Institute specifically at the Rice Engineering and Mechanization Division and identify the factors that influence those styles. A quantitative approach, including the use of a leadership style assessment tool, was used in this study. A full set of questionnaires containing 16 items was used to explore the leadership styles adopted by the employees. A total of 22 employees participated in the survey which has been selected as the sample of the study using the purposive or judgmental sampling. The study found that majority of the employees were facilitative in their style of leadership and exhibited the least authoritarian style. The leadership experience of the staff, level of education, and level of position were discovered to have an influence on their style of leadership. Although these leaders use different strategies to lead their teams, with facilitative being the most common and authoritative being the least common, an effective leader is one who can adjust their leadership style based on the unique needs and goals of their team and individual team members. Furthermore, leader should be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of their team, as well as the specific goals and tasks at hand, and then adjust their leadership approach accordingly.
