The aim of this paper is to indicate some of the distinctive problems of executive leadership which surround the control of authority in merchant navy training schools in the United States, Great Britain, and Spain. On the basis of extensive field interviews with the staff and directors of two American three British, and two Spanish schools, the purpose is to suggest conditions which give rise to the need for particular kinds of leadership styles, depending upon the manner by which nautical education is organized. The thesis is that the organizational chartering arrangements (defined as contractual and quasi-contractual linkages with various third parties to nautical education) mandate specific kinds of internal structural patterns within nautical schools which, in turn, produce the need for different styles of executive leadership.
