Transformational Leadership Impacts on Worker Motivating Behaviors
The public sector often bears the reputation for lacking motivation, and the current body of literature examining leadership and motivation showcase the power a leader has on improving worker performance. Studies show leaders have the potential to shape and transform work culture, particularly influential leadership styles. Since transformational leadership qualities are grounded in transformation and influence, this paper examines the importance of leadership on worker behavior and motivation with the focus on transformational leadership. The research study aims to apply literature findings to examine if targeted transformational leadership behaviors impact public sector workers' attitudes and performance. The proposed research design is a Likert-type questionnaire with work performance reports that evaluate if a transformational leader improves worker motivation in the Department of Public Social Services. The results could indicate if targeted transformational leadership can be concretized in public administration to produce predictable motivational behaviors in workers to improve organizational management.
