in the school amongst the students. The data collected was then edited categorically and

analyzing the data, qualitative techniques were also used.
Major findings of the study include that leadership styles played a big role in the
organization and thus can mean the difference between a strike outbreak or peaceful
resolution of the disagreement. Basing on this, the researcher believes that no single
leadership styles should be used solely. This is because, depending on the situation, a particular leadership style may be better and yield more results than others.
It thus would remain the duty of the leader to use the appropriate style based on the particular situation and his/her strengths. It should be noted, however, that which ever
style is taken, a healthy communication channel between leader and subordinate should always be kept open.
