ABSTRACT

This research studies the organizational types, managers' leadership styles and employees' behaviors and organizational performances in terms of gender differences. For the purpose of this study, the questionnaire survey was conducted with the sample of public employees working in fourteen departments in Korean central government(sample size is 491). The organizations are categorized into two groups: one is male-dominated organization, the other is female-dominated organization. A female-dominated organization is defined as an organization in which the ratio of female managers is above 30% of all managers or the ratio of female managers is above 15% of all managers. And a male-dominated organization is defined as an organization in which the ratio of the female employees is less than 30% of all employees or the ratio of female managers is less than 15% of all managers. The results show that there is no differences between managers in male-dominated organizations and those in female-dominated organizations in term of leadership styles. This means that manager's leadership style largely depends on personal characteristics and is weakly influenced by organizational situation. The results also show that task-oriented, transformational, team building styles of leadership positively influence employees' job satisfactions. And team building style of leadership positively influences organizational performances.
