The purpose of this study was to explore whether or not a relationship exists between managerial job satisfaction and creativity styles of U.S. and European managers. Data were obtained from a sample of 8,627 U.S. managers attending leadership development programs at the Center for Creative Leadership-U.S. and from another sample of 127 European managers attending leadership development programs at the Center for Creative Leadership-Europe. The results suggest that there is no relationship among various job satisfaction measures as derived from the Managerial Job Satisfaction Questionnaire and creativity style preference as measured by the Kirton Adaptation Innovation Inventory. Implications are discussed.
