Middle Management Decision Making and Job Satisfaction. The Relationship Between Participation in Decision Making, Personality Characteristics, and Job Satisfaction of Building Principals.
Johnson, Dale A.; Weiss Donald J.
This booklet reports the results of two studies of building principals that attempted to determine the extent to which the relationship between participation in decisionmaking and satisfaction would be affected by the personality of the principal participants. One study revealed that a significant relationship existed between psychological participation and job satisfaction for elementary school principals. Although the results from the second study were below the level of statistical significance, they also revealed that a positive association between psychological participation in decisionmaking and general job satisfaction existed for secondary school principals.
