Description

This paper examines the management orientation of employees in the United States by comparing the leadership perception of 484 respondents from the Alaska and Florida regions. It appears that Americans have a significantly higher score on the relationship-orientation than task-orientation. Similarly, the variables of gender, age and work experience produced similar results, showing a significantly higher score for the relationship orientation for these Alaskans and Floridians. The study also presents practical recommendations, suggestions for future research and implications of the study.
