Using the descriptive - correlational research design the instruments consisted of four parts: the personal characteristics, leadership style survey developed by Don Clark and adversity quotient by Stoltz (2012). Majority of the academic administrators were female, married and belonged to 50-59 age group. The academic administrators were doctoral degree holders and worked in the academe for 21 years and above. Most of them had associate professor I-V position. The overall adversity quotient of the academic administrators was categorized as low. Delegative style of leadership was adopted by academic leaders. On the test of hypothesis on the significant relationship between the professional leadership characteristics and the four dimensions of adversity quotient of the academic administrators were not significantly related.
