The purpose of this study is to examine whether there is any difference in the leadership and innovation approaches of the academicians who teach in different fields in terms of gender, if doing sports, title, seniority, administrative duty and marital status variables. The information form developed by the researcher in this research and the Leadership Styles and Innovation Approach inventory developed by Eysenck and Eysenck in 1975 and adapted to Turkish by Bayram in 2013 were used [3]. The sample of the study consists of 232 male and 33 female academicians from Mustafa Kemal University working in different branches of education selected by using random sampling method. Non-parametric analysis methods have been preferred because of the distributions of the obtained data. Participants' gender, marital status, regular sports activities, academic title, administrative duties and occupational seniority were found to have significant differences in terms of scale sub-dimensions in terms of all demographic values. When looking at the correlation values of the study, it is also found that there are significant relationships among the sub-dimensions.
