This study carries out an exploration of the link between change, leadership, culture and performance. The subjects were four highly successful football managers. All had turned around football clubs in very poor positions and led them to unprecedented heights. Case studies were my chosen instrument and the sample was chosen purposefully to meet the theoretical needs of the study. Through their leadership qualities and desire to succeed the managers began to improve the fortunes of their clubs and over the course of time, as results continued, a culture was created. The standards tolerated by the leader were now an integral part of the culture and maintaining the clubs levels of performances was easier. The data is quite conclusive in portraying the leader as the catalyst behind all this and the only tool he requires is results.
