Abstract
This research examines the application of various managerial leadership theories together with their arguments and justifications put forward for the selection of the participative leadership style as a panacea to increase productivities and services in private as well as in public organizations. The research tries, first, to modify the manager participative leadership style continuum, which was developed by Tannenbaum and Schmidt, to fit generally the president leadership style, and particularly the participative leadership style with two major different variables: presidential power and political participation. The former will decrease whenever the latter is allowed to be increase. Second, President Nimeri leadership style is measured against the proposed Continuum to track any changes in his leadership style toward a participative style. Thus, one aim of this research is to explore whether President Nimeri is a participative leader and if so when, why and how? iii Additionally, this research explore President Nimeri leadership behavior based on the psychoanalysis theories particularly psychobiography analysis and narcissism analysis with objectives to assert whether Nimeri has some inner–conflicts externalized in the opposite directions. Further, President Nimeri shifting ideology is analyzed in light of the narcissism analysis 1 together with some of his documented exaggerations to assert whether President Nimeri is a narcissist. The research methodology for the first part of this research is rather descriptive and depends mainly on secondary data gathered from many scattered writings on President Nimeri by himself and/or by writers like Dr. Mansour Khalid, and Dr. Faysal Abdallah, plus others. The second part of this research is also descriptive and referring to the writings of many scholars like Freud, Lasswell, George Alexander, Barner-Berry and Rosenwein to name a few. One of the findings of this study shows that President Nimeri was vulnerable to evolve toward participative leader who increased political participation and decreased his presidential power whenever he was threatened by a military coup or a military invasion.
