Abstract : The study was undertaken to determine the variation in perceptions which superiors and subordinates have of the leadership role of first-line military and civilian supervisors in an Air Force Organization. A secondary purpose of the study was to determine whether military and civilian supervisors tend to be superior-oriented or subordinate-oriented in their leadership behavior attitudes. The general hypothesis was that there are differentiated perceptions of the leadership role of the supervisor both between and within the two personnel components (superiors and subordinates) with which the supervisor must interact. Eight specific hypotheses were formulated with respect to the research objectives.
