A Study About the Relationships Between Perceived Leadership and Job Satisfaction in Fuel Sector



Due to their popularity, there are countless studies about job satisfaction and leadership. With this aspect in mind, this study scrutinizes relationships between perceived leadership and job satisfaction in a rather less considered context: fuel sector. The participants of the study are workers of fuel stations, gathered from specific regions of Istanbul. According to results obtained, their job satisfaction depends on four factors; namely task, and social, managerial and institutional aspects. Another result reveals that they perceive their immediate managers as leaders and this perceived leadership is also made of four factors: inspirational, productive and laissez-faire styles, and success orientation. Although perceived leadership is unable to affect job satisfaction completely, there are some partial effects. A look on these partial effects reveals that most items of inspirational and laissez-faire leadership styles are effective on worker’s job satisfaction. While success orientation feature of leadership can affect job satisfaction via one of its items solely, productive leadership style completely fails to affect the mentioned job satisfaction.
