Research Reviews

Dimensions of Leader Behavior in Sports: Development of a Leadership Scale

Chelladurai and S. D. Saleh

The Big Idea

Leadership is a popular topic.  In fact, if one Googles “leadership” you come in with 751,000,000 results.  Not impressed?  Well, think of it this way: “leadership” is only 180,000,000 behind the Google results for “sex.”   So at least by this metric the general topic of this paper is remarkably popular indeed.   Of course, when you gradually narrow down the specific concerns this research study addresses, it does take a bit of a drop—“leadership in sports” comes in a little under 200,000,000.
