To meet the study’s objectives, all 99 administrators and academic departments of the target school were given a survey questionnaire to complete (Multi-Factor Leadership Questionnaire–to measure transformational leadership style, Situational Factor Questionnaire–to measure the three situational factors, and researcher-constructed questions aimed at depicting the demographic profile of the participants).
