In the present study, an attempt is made to examine the influence of personality factors on supervisory performance in the context of a large Singapore construction firm.

In particular, it seeks to answer such questions as: What is the most dominant leadership styles and theire a consistent relationship between personality traits and a particular leadership style? What is the relationship between leadership style and effectiveness? The approach to the present study is empirical: the data being obtained through personal interviews and the use of personality inventory and leadership instrument, statistical techniques are used to examine the relationships between these variables. The method of investigation and the limitations of the, study will be explained in detail. A concluding comment will be made of the practical significance of the findings in the field of human resource management in Singapore.
