Abstract: The focus of this study was on the leadership styles of selected successful choral conductors in the United States. A primary purpose was to determine if there was a predominant style of leadership among choral conductors identified as successful. Of secondary interest was demographic information used to describe further the population of successful conductors and the situations in which they worked at the time they completed the survey material. Hersey and Blanchard's Situational Leadership Theory provided the model for assessing leadership styles. In this model, leadership style is dependent on the situation in which leadership occurs and the needs of the followers within those situations. Hersey and Blanchard's Leader Effectiveness and Adaptability Description Self-Test (LEAD-Self) identified four styles of leadership: Style 1 (high task/low relationship behaviors), Style 2 (high task/high relationship behaviors), Style 3 (high relationship/low task behaviors), and Style 4 (low relationship/ low task behaviors).
