ABSTRACT
Data are presented comparing the relative importance of required labor commitment and organizational adaptation in explaining variations in the leadership orientations of managers and supervisors in eight production organizations. In a previous study (Rossel, 1970), separate impacts of organizational adaptation and required labor commitment were not specified, and the two variables were combined in a single index. The present data suggest that organizational adaptation rather than required labor commitment explains the distribution of leadership orientations across positional groups.
