Abstract

The principal objective of the study was to determine the relationship between certain indices of the SPEEX-battery and the leadership dimensions of the MLQ. The SPEEX-battery was subjected to factor analysis and yielded six factors. The reliabilities of the composite scores calculated to represent each of the factors ranged from 0,712 to 0,925. The MLQ was also subjected to factor analysis and yielded three factors. A canonical correlation of 0,666 (p < 0, 000001) was obtained between the indices of the SPEEX-battery (IV’s) and the leadership dimensions of the MLQ (DV’s). The implications of the findings are discussed.

Opsomming
Die hoofdoelwit van die studie was om die verband tussen sekere indekse van die SPEEX-battery en die leierskapsdimensies van die MLQ te bepaal. Die SPEEX-battery is aan ’n faktorontleding onderwerp en ses faktore is verkry. Saamgesteldetellings is bereken om elk van die faktore te verteenwoordig. Die verkreë betroubaarhede het gewissel van 0,712 tot 0,925. Die MLQ is ook aan ’n faktorontleding onderwerp en drie faktore is verkry. ’n Kanoniese korrelasie van 0,666 (p< 0,000001) is verkry tussen die dimensies van die SPEEX-battery (OV’s) en die leierskapsdimensies van die MLQ (AV’s). Die implikasies van die studie word bespreek.
