Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between perceived leader behavior, type of organization, and the leader's perceptions of role conflict. The independent variables under investigation were the 12 factors of leader behavior, as measured by the LBDQ-XII instrument (Stogdill,1963) and type of organization. The dependent variable was perceived role conflict, as measured by the Job-Related Tension Index (Kahn et al., 1964). The sample consisted of 8 leaders from an industrial organization and 15 leaders from an educational organization. Each of these leaders completed the Job-Related Tension Index. The scores on the LBDQ-XII were obtained from the responses of 130 subordinates (role senders).
