Fred Edward Fiedler (born July 13, 1922[1]) is one of the leading researchers in Industrial and organizational psychology of the 20th century.[2] He was business and management psychologist at the University of Washington. He helped this field move from the research on traits and personal characteristics of leaders, to leadership styles and behaviours. In 1967 he introduced the contingency modeling of leadership, with the now-famous Fiedler contingency model.
