Correlation and regression analysis were used to examine the effects of leadership concern for work, staff and work/staff combined (independent variables) on followership satisfaction (dependent variable). The result shows that there exists strong positive relationship between the independent variables and the dependent variable. In addition, the result further revealed that all the independent variables have p-values < 0.05 significant level which indicates that the independent variables have significant effect on followership satisfaction, however, concern for work and staff combined have significant effect on followership compared to other independent variables.
