This study measured three dimensions of organizational culture's characteristics (innovation and risk taking, team orientation and aggressiveness) as independent variables and three dimensions of leadership styles(transformational, transactional and situational) as dependent variables. By using stratified random sampling, a total of 129 sets of
questionnaires were collected among the administrative staffs of grade 41 to 54 in UNIMAP. The data was subsequently analysed using SPSS linear regression analysis
