The Effect of Dimensions of Transformational, Transactional, and Non-Leadership on the Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment of Teachers in Iran
Sayadi, Yaser
Management in Education, v30 n2 p57-65 Apr 2016
It has been found that transformational and transactional leadership is positively related to the effectiveness of the leader, the subordinate's effort, job satisfaction, and the subordinate's organizational commitment. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of transformational, transactional, and non-leadership on job satisfaction and organizational commitment. The population was teachers of all three levels of schooling (elementary, intermediate, and high school) in the province of Kermanshah, Iran in 2012-2013. The sample consisted of 387 teachers who were randomly selected from among 42 schools. The results seem to indicate that teachers experienced more value commitment than commitment to stay and job satisfaction. The results of the study revealed that charismatic leadership was a strong predictor of job satisfaction and value commitment, and laissez-faire leadership was a strong (negative) predictor of intent to stay.
