Relationship between Leadership Styles and Faculty Job Satisfaction (A Review-based Approach)

Tesfay Kelali, Dr. Sarang Narula

The main objective of this paper is review and synthesis of studies regarding the relationship between leadership styles and faculty job satisfaction. The study is mainly based on review of related literatures. Few things are more important to human activity than leadership. During period of knowledge transformation and intertwining human relationships, strong leadership is widely recognized as the key to providing people with visions and responding to social demands. Effective leadership and employee job satisfaction are two factors that have been regarded as fundamental for organisational success. A capable leader provides direction for the organisation and leads followers towards achieving desired goals. In similar vein, employees with high job satisfaction are likely to exert more effort in their assigned tasks and pursue organisational interests. It is evident that the appropriate leadership style used by leaders may be the most effective in overcoming the low job satisfaction of staff in an organization. Transformational leadership style is more pronounced in faculty job satisfaction as compared to transactional or laissez-faire leadership styles. Further studies need to be conducted taking into account other variables that might affect employee job satisfaction in addition to the leadership behaviours and demographic factors.
