Charismatic leadership, Mentoring Effectiveness, Self-Determination, Physical education


The current study aimed to find the relationship between charismatic leadership, mentoring effectiveness and self-determination in physical education instructors. It was hypothesized that there would be a negative relationship between charismatic leadership and mentoring effectiveness and a positive relationship between charismatic leadership and self-determination. Charismatic leadership and mentoring effectiveness would be significant positive predictors of self-determination. Data were collected from male physical education teachers from Lahore using a convenient sampling. The research findings indicate that instructors with strategic vision, sensitivity to the environment, and sensitivity to members’ needs have a high awareness of themselves and their perceived choices. There were non-significant family systems, educational differences, and income differences in self-determination among physical education instructors. = This study would help explore leadership styles in connection to mentoring effectiveness and self-determination for better teaching efficacy and the development of academia. Future research can include female teachers and cities other than Lahore.
