Some Results From the Motivational Leadership Training Program : Psychology Colloquium Other events...
Organizations need to know how to motivate and engage their employees in a healthy fashion (i.e., preserving or enhancing their well-being). A large number of organizations send their managers to leadership training, even though we know surprisingly little about its impact on employee motivation, performance, and well-being. We developed the Motivational Leadership Training Program, based on existing and popular training programs, to examine the mediational role of work motivation in the relationship between leadership training and changes in employee performance and well-being. Grounded in the theory of full-range leadership and self-determination theory, the program was tested through a quasi-experimental design including pre/post-tests to evaluate its impact on subordinate motivation, performance, and well-being. Preliminary results showed little improvement in leadership style and in employee motivation following training, though some moderators were found. However, it is clear from longitudinal multilevel path modeling that the leadership style adopted by managers had a strong influence on their employees’ work motivation.
