Transformational Leadership Style Inspires Medium Positive Relationship with Employees’ Commitment
A faculty in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, Covenant University, Mr. Ugochukwu Abasilim, has submitted that transformational leadership style has a medium positive relationship with employees’ commitment.
This style, according to a study he co-authored with Professor Daniel Gberevbie and Dr. Omotayo Osibanjo, also of the Department of Political Science and International Relations, Covenant, paid attention to employees, thereby stimulating and inspiring them to accomplish unprecedented results, which went beyond the stated expectations, and the leaders were able to develop their capacity.
In the research article titled ‘Leadership Styles and Employees’ Commitment: Empirical Evidence from Nigeria’, the authors stated that leadership style had often been considered as one of the vital factors that could enhance employees’ commitment and it was seen as the live wire for the attainment of organizational goals.
They asserted that although research had focused on the nexus between leadership styles and employees’ commitment, little consideration had been paid to identify the influence of demographic variables on the nexus between leadership styles and employees’ commitment in Nigeria, thereby leaving a gap.
It was based on the foregoing that this article examined the relationship between leadership styles (transformational, transactional, and laissez-faire leadership) and employees’ commitment and also identified the influence of demographic variables on the relationship between leadership styles and employees’ commitment in Lagos State Civil Service Commission of Nigeria.
Published in the Sage Journal, the article had 1 as its Altmetric score.
Mr. Abasilim’s research interests include Public Administration, Organisational Leadership, Public Personnel Administration and E-Governance.
