Purpose – The purpose of this study is to test for the distinctiveness of organizational versus occupational sportsmanship behavior, and then to investigate the relationship of leader-member exchange (LMX) to each.

Design/methodology/approach – A sample of 223 matched nurse-supervisor dyads working for a hospital in Oman was surveyed. Analytic methods included factor analysis and regression.

Findings – Organizational sportsmanship behavior was distinguishable from occupational sportsmanship behavior. LMX or the quality of relationship with the supervisor was a significant positive correlate to both types of sportsmanship. Hierarchical regression results showed that LMX significantly contributed to explaining both types of sportsmanship behavior beyond the controlled-for correlates.
