Challenges that leadership styles give to NGOs when used to promote their objectives: A case study of Ashinaga NGO in Wakiso District, Uganda.
The essence of this study was mainly to establish the challenges leadership styles give to NGOs when used to promote their objectives with specific reference of Ashinaga Uganda in Wakiso district. These findings were meant to give some light on what could be happening with the NGOs and their work because many of them have joined the operation with well set objectives but have ended up failing to do what they had promised. Others have either registered but collapsed before going far with the operation, or those which seemed to be doing well at first have also reached in the middle of their operation and changed interests to promote other different things. This have raised a lot of concerns that had sought explanations to understand what really happens To gather the information, the study used a population of 42 respondents and applied both qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection and analysis. Qualitative method was used in the areas that contained personal interviews from the respondents to back up the statistical findings and quantitative method was applied in areas that required explanation of phenomena by using objective measurements and statistical analyses of numerical data generated through questionnaires. The study found out that by using the styles to promote their objectives NGOs have experienced a number of challenges because either the style had failed to adjustably fit where they had been placed to operate due to the situations and needs that keep changing, or, the NGO lacked enough facilities and a supportive working environment to back up their application and effectiveness. The research concluded that much as the adopted styles mighty have brought challenges that had affected the work of NGOs, those which were discovered to have come due other factors seemed to have had an upper hand in hampering the set goals. The study recommended NGO to first observer and study the environment they are going to operate in, then analyze all the style before adopting them so that they could identify each can work effectively in response to the interest of the Organization, the people it will be imposed their needs and expectations plus the situation of the time that keeps on changing.
