Abstract : Differences in perceptions of the comparative presence of peer leadership behaviors by persons in groups different in average personal background, organizational status, or operating function are examined. In addition, differences in the interrelationship of managerial leadership, peer leadership, satisfaction, motivational climate, and group decision-making are compared for groups which differ systematically in the ways described above. The implications of the findings for organizational development are discussed. (Author)
