Abstract

Leadership's pivotal role in organizations, fostering goodwill and effective skill utilization, underscores its significance in promoting organizational success. This study focuses on the impact of leadership styles on faculty job performance, particularly exploring how the dimensions of transactional and transformational leadership styles evolved post-pandemic. Data from 345 faculty members were analyzed using reliability and descriptive tests. Transactional and transformational leaders, despite differing in focus, nature, and characteristics, share the common objective of enhancing employee commitment to organizational goals. With job performance serving as the dependent variable and leadership style as the independent variable, quantitative analysis demonstrates the degree to which these leadership philosophies influence long-term outcomes in higher education. The constant term (B = 12.965) represents the work performance that is anticipated in the absence of both transactional and transformational leadership philosophies. While the coefficient for transformational leadership style (B = 1.462) indicates an expected increase in job performance with a one-unit leadership style increase, the standardized coefficient (Beta = 0.387) suggests this impact is not statistically significant (Sig. = 0.000). Conversely, the coefficient for transactional leadership style (B = -0.570) implies a decrease in job performance with a one-unit increase, supported by a statistically significant negative relationship (Beta = 0.453, Sig. = 0.000).
