Abstract : A canonical correlation analysis was conducted to examine the relationship between three organizational reward criterion variables and twelve leadership behavior categories using the newly developing Leadership Observation System of measurement. Managers (N = 49) from a large financial institution served as subjects in the study. One canonical root was extracted for interpretation which inversely related the behaviors of exchanging routine information and socializing/politicing with salary and promotion rewards. Implications of the results for the study of leadership are discussed and it is concluded that further investigation of the relationship between leadership behaviors and organizational rewards is warranted.
