Abstract

This study seeks to investigate the relationship between leader-subordinate congruence and performance and satisfaction. Data was gathered from 267 leader-subordinate dyads in a light manufacturing electrical assembly plant in Wales and 82 leader-subordinate dyads in another in England, UK Data on personality of the respondents and their supervisors were gathered using the 16PF (Cattell et aL, 1992). The absolute difference between the personality scores of the respondent and the supervisor for each of the five secondary personality factors were calculated. The absolute differences were then totalled up to obtain a total difference score. As expected there was a significant correlation between the difference scores and satisfaction with the supervisor and overall job satisfaction.
