Fred Fiedler decided to become a psychologist before he had even entered his teens. Post-World War I Vienna, where Fiedler grew up, was richly flavored by the ideas of Freud, Adler, Jung, and their followers, and the Fiedler household contained many intriguing psychology books for a boy his age. Fourteen years, five thousand miles, and twenty-one jobs later (not counting military service in the U.S. Army), Fiedler completed his PhD in Psychology from the University of Chicago and embarked on a research agenda that would paradigmatically shift how people think about leadership.
For eighteen years, beginning with a 1954 study of the leadership of high school basketball teams-which led to the development of the Least Preferred Coworker (LPC) score-Fiedler poked and prodded the data from his various studies on leadership effectiveness. As Fiedler writes, "A clean and elegant experiment may be a thing of beauty and joy forever, but building a sound theory is more like trying to solve a picture puzzle in which half the pieces are missing… I am convinced that data are adversaries that have to be beaten into submission… I have been struck time and again by the realization that I did not really begin to understand some of our research results until many years and studies later.
