This study aims at identifying the relationship along with differences between leadership grid and conflicts resolution strategies across level of teacher, subordinates’ and students in different universities of Bangladesh. The sample size for the study is 200 and random sampling technique was conducted for collecting data of aforementioned sample from individuals (teachers), subordinates and students of various university. Statistical tools and techniques such as the descriptive statisticswere applied in order to analyse the data, interpret and draw conclusions with respect to the objectives set. It is found from study that, Academic leaders’ (teachers) do not use middle of the road or compromising approach. Team approach is considered most at subordinates’ level conflicts. Compromising and middle of the road should ideally be the least preferred style of conflict resolution and leadership approach. The leaders (teachers) tend to use approaches varied across levels and somehow related to the contingency approaches. The study provides valuable pointers for the policy makers to use managerial roles such as leadership style to conflict resolution and use this in a proper manner in further.
