This study addresses the topic of behavioral project team leadership. A framework consisting of nine types of project team leadership behaviors is proposed. The Proposed Behavioral Project Team Leadership Model (PBPTLM) that was tested was developed by integrating the findings of past studies focused on general behavioral leadership and behavioral team leadership. This study sought to test the validity of nine types of team leadership behaviors, as well as test whether the behavioral categories and subcategories that make up the PBPTLM are logically distinct, symmetrical, and cohesive. The resulting Revised Behavioral Project Team Leadership Model (RBPTLM) provides a logical cognitive structure in which all behavioral team leadership can be considered. The model aids team leaders in understanding the various types of behaviors that are important to providing leadership to project teams, and can act as a guideline for creating training programs designed to teach professionals how to lead project teams.
