Abstract

Leadership is a process of interaction between leaders and subordinates where a leader attempts to influence the behavior of his or her subordinates to accomplish organizational goals (Yuki, 2005). Leadership cannot take place without the participation of the subordinates and power is the essence of leaders' behavior. Despite the relevance of power to organizational influence in general, and to an understanding of leadership in particular, research studies of power, job satisfaction,and leaders' gender are not well integrated. The manufacturing companies chosen in this study covered both local and multinational companies from various sectors. This study examined the direct effect of power on job satisfaction and also explored the moderating effect of the supervisors' gender on the above relationship. The findings suggested the power is a direct predictor of job satisfaction particularly the personal dimension of power bases.
