Abstract (2. Language): 
Organizational climate is a result of organizational management. The organizarional climate ideas of staff can give clues about the manageemnt type of any organization. While negative perceptions may reveal that there is an unbalanced organizational climate, positive perceptions show that there is a balanced organizational culture of any organization. This study was carried out to adapt “Leadership Orientation Scale” developed by Thompson (2005) into Turkish. In the original scale, there were 4 sub dimensions and 32 items and in the adapted form the structure has not changed. It also has 4 dimensions and 32 items. 300 teachers participated in Explarotory Factor Analysis (EFA) process and 234teachers for Confirmatory Factor Analysis process (CFA). As a result the scale can be considered as an important value that can be used in the Turkish culture to obtain comparable reserch results from other cultures.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Örgüt iklim, örgütsel yapı ve yönetimin bir sonucudur. Çalışanların örgütün yapısı ve yöneticilerin liderlik davranışlarına dair algıları örgütlerdeki var olan örgütsel iklim hakkında bir fikir vermektedir. Örgütsel iklime dair olumsuz algılar, örgütte dengesiz bir yönetim yapısı bulunduğunu göstermekte iken olumlu algılar ise dengeli bir yönetim yapısı olduğunu ortaya koymaktadır. Bu çalışma, örgütsel yapı hakkında bilgi veren ve Thompson (2005) tarafından geliştirilen “Liderlik Oryantasyon Ölçeğinin” Türkçeye uyarlanmasını amaçlamaktadır. Ölçeğin orijinal halinde dört alt boyut ve 32 madde bulunmaktadır. Yapılan uyarlama çalışması sonucunda ölçeğin Türkçeye uyarlanan şeklinin de aynı yapıyı koruduğu görülmektedir. Ölçeğin Türkçeye uyarlanması sürecine, Açımlayıcı Faktör Analizi (AFA) için 300 ve Doğrulayıcı Faktör Analizi (DAF) için 234 öğretmen katılmıştır. Ölçeğin dilimize uyarlanmış şekliyle ülkemizde yapılacak araştırmalarla elde edilen bulguların, aynı ölçekle farklı kültürlerde yapılan/yapılacak olan araştırma bulgularıyla karşılaştırılabilmesine olanak sağlayacağından, ölçeğin Türkçeye uyarlanmasının önemli olduğu söylenebilir.
