Leadership in Men’s Groups/Sheds: The impact of leadership styles and value congruence on the participation and commitment of members
MetadataShow full item record
The momentum of the Men's Groups/Sheds growth in Australia has meant that they now represent one of the largest health and well-being initiatives in the country. This study is about Indigenous and non- Indigenous Men's Groups/Sheds and explores the influence of leadership style (transformational and transactional) and value congruence on the participation and commitment of members and how this impacts the social and emotional well-being on men members. A qualitative approach incorporates focus groups and semi-structured interviews. Findings suggest that the way leaders influence and impose their leadership styles will impact on the participation and commitment of the members. Furthermore, the similarity of values and the influence of transformational leaders have a strong impact on the participation of members.
