This paper uses the Competing Values Framework (CVF) to determine the need for leadership development and/or for a cultural shift within a public sector organization in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The assessment of the prevailing leadership roles will timeously identify shortfalls in the leadership, signaling areas for leadership development. Identifying the dominant leadership models and organizational culture will indicate whether the prevailing culture is appropriate or whether strategies need to be developed for a culture shift. A sample of 202 managers was drawn using stratified random sampling based on managerial level (top, senior, middle). Data was collected using a self-developed measuring instrument and analyzed using descriptive statistics in terms of the dynamics of the CVF. Results indicate that the management cadre displays dominance in the monitor and mentor leadership roles, and the organization operates predominantly in the Internal Process Model with a dominant hierarchy culture. Evidence reflects that distinct areas of leadership development lies in the director and facilitator roles and if the organization would like to adopt a market culture, leaders would need development in the director and producer roles in order to be results orientated.

Keywords: Managerial Roles, Open Systems Model, Rational Goal Model, Internal Process Model, Human Relations Model, Clan Culture, Adhocracy Culture, Market Culture, Hierarchy Culture
