The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to examine the possible relationship between transformational leadership style behaviors and the influence it had on employee satisfaction. The information presented in this study involved virtual team members at the Defense Contract Management Agency, Navy Special Emphasis Operations. The aims of the study was to examine the influence of transformational leadership style as measured by Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Bass & Avolio, 2004) and employee satisfaction, as measured by the Spector's Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) (Spector, 1997). The analyses utilized a Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient (two tailed) and a regression analyses was used to investigate the relationship between the two variables. The statistical analysis was conducted by using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 10.0 and in an Excel spreadsheet to foster congregate validity to the statistical findings. In each condition, the software programs were in agreement. Therefore, the survey data from the JSS revealed that virtual team members within the sample population experienced higher levels of employee satisfaction with virtual team leaders who adapt and use leadership style behaviors that lean more towards transformational leadership style behaviors than transactional leadership style behaviors. The survey data from the MLQ revealed that virtual team leaders within the sample population showed that employee job satisfaction and transformational leadership style as measured by the PPMCC had a statistically significant positive correlation.
