This study mainly analyzed the leadership traits and styles of the 402 executives (10 Presidents, 30 Vice-Presidents, 62 Deans, 26 Campus Directors, 96 Directors and 178 Heads) of the ten SUC in Eastern Visayas. The descriptive-qualitative technique was used as the method for this study. It utilized the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ 5X) and the Leadership Trait Questionnaire. The descriptive analysis used the Pearson-Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (Pearson r), Phi-Coefficient/Cramer’s V, Eta Correlation, and One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Along the qualitative dimension, one faculty and one support were considered per SUC to join the Focus Group Discussion (FGD). The FGD is analyzed through a content analysis using NVivo 10 Software. It utilized the word frequency query, word cloud analysis, and the cluster analysis horizontal dendrogram.
