Abstract

This paper intends to examine relationships between value orientation and leadership style of managers and the organizational health perceived by supervisory, non-supervisory and combined work groups in a multivariate framework. A sample of 98 branch managers and 537 employees belonging to 18 branches responded to the questionnaire used in the investigation. Much factor similarity was noticed in the Indian data when compared with the available American data. Subgroup analysis between value orientation and leadership style indicated that hierarchical status of work groups have a moderating affect on the relationship between managerial variables and perceived organizational health dimensions. In general, equalitarianism, individualism and acceptance of authority were found to have some impact on initiation and outgoingness, innovativeness and involvement dimensions.
