En el estudio participaron 334 entrenadores españoles de balonmano, el 86.5% hombres y el 13.2% mujeres. Surgieron seis factores del análisis factorial exploratorio del cuestionario: orientación hacia el trabajo colectivo, orientación tecnológica, orientación innovadora, orientación al diálogo, orientación directiva, y una orientación de clima social.
