Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n9 p2195-2208 2016
This study aimed to determine school administrators' organizational power sources and change management behaviours based on Bolu central district primary and secondary school teachers' views. The study conducted with relational screening model reached 286 teachers. School Administrators' Organizational Power Sources Scale and Change Management Behaviour Scale were used in the study as data collection tools. Data analysis included percentages, frequencies, means, standard deviation, Mann Whitney-U, Kruskal Wallis and correlation analysis. According to the research, teachers completely agree with administrators' use of organizational power sources and they mostly agree with their change management behaviours. It was found that personal variables such as gender and professional seniority created a significant difference in teachers' views regarding the behaviors related to organizational power sources and professional seniority created a significant chance in the views about change management behaviors. A strong positive and meaningful relationship was found between teachers' views on change management behaviors and expert, referent, reward and total organizational power sources and a medium level significant relationship was observed with legitimate and coercive power.
