Abstract: Construction firms in Abuja are multicultural comprising of different tribes which cut across the country. The interactions of these tribes on site pose a big problem to the organisations that employed them besides the advantage it offers if it is adequately managed. The study is aimed at determining the best managerial style that will mitigate the problem of cultural diversity through the use of embedded mixed methods methodology. This was achieved by interviewing ten managers/supervisors of construction sites and self-administration of 277 well-structured questionnaires. The results of the interview and questionnaires analysis showed that construction firms in Abuja have not really acquired the managerial skill needed to effectively manage the diverse workforce. The cultural dimensions for the tribes on sites were determined to act as a new found managerial style that could be adopted by managers to effectively managed the diverse workforce on construction sites in Abuja, FCT.
