Shagufta Parveen, Adeel Tariq
This study attempts to know that leadership style and gender of head of department affect the job satisfaction of faculty members in universities of Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Wah and Taxila. Total sample chosen was 350 faculty members from 9 universities of Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Wah and Taxila. Questionnaires completed and returned by 223 respondents which were included in study. Remaining were incomplete or misplaced. Results of this study were extracted using regression analysis and the relationship was tested using correlation. The results reflected that leadership style and gender of heads of departments have significant effect on job satisfaction of faculty members. While studying which leadership style is preferred, selling leadership style is found as primary style for making decisions by heads of department. Participating leadership style is used as secondary style by heads of departments in all universities included in current study.
