Bygone leadership theories have been successful in guiding managers on how to motivate fellow colleagues (subordinates) to excel in their performance. But these theories have failed to identify a single best approach of leadership for all situations. But William James Reddin’s three dimensional management style Theory provides insight on the leadership styles to be employed in relevance to situations. This paper is based on a study of 3D management style theory and Tri Dimensional leadership effectiveness model in practice where the researcher has made an attempt to differentiate leadership styles and examine the association between leadership behavior and hierarchical levels. Analysis of data reveals that there exists a significant association between the two. The reveals that managers at lower level who follow separated and dedicated basic leadership style are employing ineffective style adaptability; Managers at middle level following Dedicated, Integrated and Related basic leadership styles are observed to employ effective style adaptability and managers at the top level following Integrated, Separated and Related basic leadership styles employ a blend of both effective and ineffective style adaptability.
