Effective leaders must do more than just lead, they need to inspire the team want to work cohesively to solve problems and achieve goals. The purpose of the study was to analyze the leadership behavior among female athletes of different team games. 160 female athletes were purposively selected from each team games i.e., Basketball-40, Football-40, Volleyball-40 & Hockey-40, age ranged 17-25 years with mean and standard deviation (19.45 + 3.02) from four different regions (Gwalior, Bhopal, Indore, and Jabalpur) of Madhya Pradesh, India, who at least all India inter university participated. Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS) was used made up of 40 items that are divided into 5 subscales i.e., Instructional (training) behavior, Democratic behavior, Autocratic behavior, Social support behavior, and Rewarding behavior (in the form of positive feedback given). One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used at 0.05 level of significance. The calculated F value of two sub-factors of LSS found significant i.e. social support(SS) and rewarding behavior (RD) were 6.957 and 6.927 which were greater than tabulated F value (3,156) df at 0.05 level of significance. As a combined concept of Leadership behavior among team games researchers got to know that perceptions of team and individual success, as well as starter/nonstarter playing status, were also related to perceptions of coaching behaviors and/or team cohesion, while offensive and defensive positions were not related to these constructs (Westre & Weiss, 2009).
