by Smothers, Albert E., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 107 pages; 3310721


This study involves two very important aspects in the field of organizational behavior: leadership styles and organizational commitment. The main purpose of this study was to describe the employees' perception of the mayor's leadership style and the employees' level of organizational commitment within several departments within the municipality. The demographic profile (age, gender, race, education, and length of service) of the employees was also identified. This study examined the relationship between the independent variables (leadership style and demographic profile) and dependent variable (organizational commitment).
