Examining Competing Models of Transformational Leadership, Leadership Trust, Change Commitment, and Job Satisfaction



Examining Competing Models of Transformational Leadership, Leadership Trust, Change Commitment, and Job Satisfaction



Psychological Reports 119(1): 154-173



This study discusses the influence of transformational leadership on job satisfaction through assessing six alternative models related to the mediators of leadership trust and change commitment utilizing a data sample (N = 341; M age = 32.5 year, SD = 5.2) for service promotion personnel in Taiwan. The bootstrap sampling technique was used to select the better fitting model. The tool of hierarchical nested model analysis was applied, along with the approaches of bootstrapping mediation, PRODCLIN2, and structural equation modeling comparison. The results overall demonstrate that leadership is important and that leadership role identification (trust) and workgroup cohesiveness (commitment) form an ordered serial relationship.
