    Discuss Fiedler’s Contingency Theory of Leadership.


    His contingency model contained the relationship between leadership style (human relations or task-direct) as measured by the Least Preferred Coworker (LPC) scale, and the favorableness of the situation (leader-member relations, degree of task structure, and position power).

    Situations are favorable for the leader when all three situational dimensions are high. When the dimensions are low, the situation is unfavorable.

    Under highly favorable or unfavorable situations, task directed leaders are more effective. In situations of moderate favorableness, by far the most common situation, human relations leaders are more effective.
