The following are possible titles for a study regarding organizational leadership.
Relationship between inclusive leadership and organization performance in different cultures
According to Suk Bong, Thi Bich Hanh and Byung Il (2015), it would be essential to perform this research in various countries. This research will enable generalizing the effect of inclusive leadership to organizational performance among diverse cultural backgrounds. Moreover, Walumbwa et al. (2015) explains that there is need to determine the extent of linkage of follower behavior to involvement in work among diverse cultures.
Transformational, charismatic and narcissism and other leadership qualities on organizational performance
There is a strong relationship between leadership qualities and organizational performance. Therefore, it is essential to compare how various leadership qualities affect organizational performance. Such a study will help in explaining organization’s performance based on the leadership quality used (Bastedo, Samuels & Kleinman, 2014). Judge et al. (2006) argue that it is essential to perform an empirical research to validate effects of transformational and charismatic qualities in organizational performance.
Adaptation and variance of skills and styles of leadership in various levels of organization
Leadership skills and styles are vital in the management of an organization. Leadership effectiveness is affected by leadership skills and styles and hence an organization’s performance. Kaiser and Craig (2011) argue that it is essential to conduct an evaluation of how various levels of organization are related to leadership skills and styles. In conducting this study, it would be prudent to consider how various aspects of skills and styles such as their improvement and development are related to leadership effectiveness (De Meuse, Dai & Wu, 2011).
Organization’s commitment, leadership and culture relationship
Several studies have been conducted validating organization’s leadership, culture, and commitment relationship. However, these studies have considered only a single cultural background (Gokce, Guney & Katrinli, 2014; Roper, 2011). Therefore, there is need to assess the relationship of these factors in a diverse cultural background.
