Abstract: Leadership has always been a noteworthy issue since ancient times and there are many historical instances that pinpoint its vast effects on the history of humanity. As time passes by, everything changes and this fact is also veridical for leadership research. Currently, there are innumerable paradigms about leadership, some of which overarch classical conventional leadership approaches. It is striking that some paradigms and ideas mark contemporaneousness and technology via innovativeness and this is exactly the matter, which is considered by the author of this study. Put other way, this study questions the place of innovativeness with regards to leadership. This questioning is performed by means of data collected from high technology businesses in a prominent techno park in Turkey. Participants are the top managers of these businesses and are asked to express their attitudes about innovativeness and their perceptions about their own leadership features. Obtained results demonstrate that the participants are aware of innovativeness, they believe that they have a bifold leadership feature, and their leadership feature and attitudes towards innovativeness are inter-related.
