The present research examined the relationship between two leadership test, the Least-Preferred Co-Worker (LPC) scale and the Leadership Opinion Questionnaire (LOQ). The two instruments are claimed to measure two conceptually similar dimensions of leadership style. One dimension is task orientation which is indicated by a low score on the LPC sclae and a high score on the Initiating Structure (IS) dimension of the LOQ. The other dimension is relationship-orientation which is indicated by a high score on the LPC scale and a high score on the Consideration (C) dimension of the LOQ. (abstract)
