Abstract

Personal values and leadership styles have attracted much attention in the literature. In addition, the literature emphasizes the relationships between personal values and leadership styles adopted in organizations. However, the review of the small business literature reveals that limited studies have strived to investigate the relationships between personal values and leadership styles in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), particularly in the local context. This study attempted to address this issue by examining the relationships between personal values and leadership style-orientation among the owners and the managers of the SMEs. The data for the study was collected by mailing structured questionnaires to 140 SMEs.The results of the study indicated that three of the jive personal values found among the owners and managers of SMEs are positively related to the four leadership style-orientation adopted in these firms.
