by Dean, Raymond J., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 229 pages; 3339011


This study explored the effect of leadership communication on employee perceptions of an organizational change at two nuclear power plants. The case study focused on exploring whether relationships exists between organizational communication, style of leadership, employee empowerment, and organizational justice during organizational change. The results of the study demonstrated that a relationship exists between leadership communications and employee perceptions of an organizational change. The data collected indicates that the content and frequency of communications can affect employee perceptions of organizational justice and empowerment. In addition, the communication strategies employed in the organizational change were seen as indicators of leadership style by the individuals who received the communications.
