The ten styles are the conservative, entrepreneurial, professional, bureaucratic, organic, authoritarian, participative, intuitive, familial, and altruistic. The data on the relationship between these ten styles and ten indicators of perceived organizational effectiveness are presented and discussed. The participative, professional, and altruistic management styles had the most correlations with the indicators of effectiveness. Implications for management excellence are drawn.
