    Abstract

    This study is concerned with the determination of the most common and effective leadership style in a non-Western culturally mixed environment, and with the exploration of the correlates of leadership style in such a context. Results indicate that consultative style was the most common and effective leadership style in such an environment. Furthermore, findings indicate that leaders' personal attributes such as national culture, experience, education and age; subordinates' personal attributes such as gender, national culture, age and tenure in present organization and organizational factors such as the organization's ownership have a significant relationship with leadership style. Additionally, leaders' personal attributes such as gender, marital status and tenure in present organization, and subordinates' personal attributes such as education, experience and marital status, in addition to organizational factors such as the organization's activity and age have no relationship with leadership style.
