Abstract

Effective leadership always plays a vital role in the growth and better performance of the employees and organization. This research has been conducted to determine the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership styles with job performance of the production workers in Grand Banks Yacht Sdn.Bhd which is from the shipbuilding and ship-repairing sector. Besides that, this study also intends to identify the leadership style that contributes to higher job performance. Information was gathered, using two instruments, from a sample of 9 leaders and 140 production workers. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire was used to determine the leadership style practiced within the organization, while the Performance Appraisal Questionnaire was used to determine the job performance of the production workers. Results showed positive trends of all variables. It was concluded that the transformational and transactional leadership styles are found to have a positive and highly significant relationship with job performance of the production workers in this study. The results of regression analysis show that transformational leadership style has more influence on job performance compared to transactional leadership style.
