Two aspects of perfectionism among supervisors were compared with their discomfort when managing the performance of subordinates. Results indicated that two types of maladaptive perfectionism may be present in supervisor tendencies when managing performance. Definitions of maladaptive and adaptive traits of perfectionism were compared with discomfort and discussed in relation to management style and effectiveness. Conclusions suggested roles perfectionism may play in supervisor management styles, and its potential for effect on organizational climate. Implications for management development were discussed. Recommendations were made for further research regarding perfectionism in organizational contexts.
