Abstract

Management in today’s world is about management in times of rapid change. The need to develop better leadership styles is becoming increasingly important in every organization. The purpose of this research is to ascertain if there is a relationship between the leadership styles (Full Range of Leadership) and the employees’ job performance. Meanwhile to determine the relationships between leadership styles and employees’ job performance through the mediating role of employees’ motivation and job satisfaction. Quantitative research method was used in this research. The questionnaire, 5 point Likert scale has been used to gather the data. Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) utilised as a technique of analysis in this research, due to the complexity of the model and the limitation of multi-dimension analysis tools in quantitative research such as mediation analysis, factor analysis, formative constructs and discriminant analysis. Finally, this research finding suggests that transformational leadership is the most suitable style to be employed in this case. It has strongest relationship with the employees’ motivation and satisfaction and employee's job performance. In addition, it boosts up the followers’ job performance. The finding mentioned as well that transactional styles can be adopted in this context; however, laissez-faire style is not advisable.
