Abstract: This study examined the extent to which human resource empowerment is applied to Greek sport federations, and analysed their organisational performance based on two variables (government funding and Olympic distinctions). The study was a quantitative design using descriptive statistics and one way analysis of variance to answer the research questions. A sample of 61 managerial and technical directors of 20 Greek sport federations was surveyed using a 30-item management style survey, developed by Vogt and Murrell (1990). The results of this study supported that there is a significant difference among the aforementioned groups/federations (as shown by two variables), and the key factors of empowerment. This study is useful in extending the concept of empowerment to Greek sport sector. The study will be useful in helping sport directors to their further understanding of the empowerment process in their respective sport federations.
