Abstract:The aim of this research is to study which variables are related to leadership effectiveness and voice climate. For this study a mixed method research approach is used in which data is collected from leaders and subordinates and face to face interviews are held with leaders at eight manufacturing companies in Sri Lanka. The quantitative data supports the qualitative data in that the strength of the quantitative and qualitative approach can be maximized, while making up for the weaknesses of the single approaches. The mix of quantitative and qualitative data developed a more complete and complementary understanding, and increased the validity of the results. The companies are approached initially by mail and telephone conversation. The results showed that transformational leadership is positively related to leadership effectiveness and voice climate. The variables information sharing, LMX and proactive behaviour are also positively related to leadership effectiveness.
