Manager and staff perceptions of the manager's leadership style.
J Nurs Adm. 2008 Nov; 38(11):480-7.JN

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The purpose of this study was to look at manager and staff perceptions of the manager's leadership style and to determine what effect transformational leadership style has on job satisfaction.

BACKGROUND

Nursing job satisfaction is a critical element in addressing the nursing shortage. Literature supports that job satisfaction is related to nurse manager leadership style. This fact has caused nurse managers to carefully consider their leadership style and the impact it has on the nurses they manage.

METHODS

A descriptive correlational, comparative design was used in a convenience sample of nurse managers and their direct report nursing staff (n = 92).

RESULTS

A correlation was found between nurse manager transformational leadership style and nurse job satisfaction (r = 0.348, P < .05).

CONCLUSION

Transformational leadership style was associated with higher levels of job satisfaction. The findings added to the knowledge about variables that are correlated with job satisfaction, which is a critical issue to nursing.
