by Mestman, Ben-Gourion I., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 104 pages; 3264290


It has been hypothesized that in sports officiating, sports officials utilize a leadership style in administering and managing sporting events. However, the sports world is still in need of a widely recognized design for the evaluation of leadership styles in sports officiating. Thus, the purpose of this study is to develop an understanding of the types of leadership styles in sports officiating by using four behavioral predispositions through the survey results of the DISC personality model that will be presented in this study.
