Abstract (summary)

The purpose of this quantitative, correlation research study was to measure the relationship between six dimensions of leader behavioral style and four cultural types for a sample of 38 water resources collaborative teams. The study used two validated instruments, the LaFasto and Larson Collaborative Team Leader and Cameron and Quinn Organizational Cultural Assessment Instruments, to measure leadership behavioral style and team culture, respectively. A demographic questionnaire was also used. Results indicated that multi-sector, multi-disciplinary water resources collaborative teams provide few correlations with regard to leader behavioral style and team culture. The implication of this research is that collaborative leaders may face leadership challenges that are not fully understood, providing impetus for future research in the leadership and organization management fields.
