Nonprofit youth organizational leadership: An examination of servant and transformational leadership from within

by White, Shauna T., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 120 pages; 3434785


The concept of leadership has been of increasing interest and much debate among scholars. Scholars have disputed for years over which leadership style is more suitable within an organization. The purpose of this study is to examine the differences between the two leadership styles, servant leadership and transformational leadership. This paper will review the conceptual and empirical development of servant leadership and transformational leadership. This paper will also present and discuss the arguments, conflicting opinions and diverging perspectives regarding servant leadership and transformational leadership. The researcher concludes this study with the outcome that in hypothesis 1, the overall regression model was significant; it is servant leadership that is really significant and not transformational leadership. By looking at the individual regressions within the multiple regression we can see that the bottom line is that as people tend to have higher scores in servant leadership, they are tending to have higher scores in the number of roles or tasks assumed and for the perception of productivity during the past 2 years. For all of the findings in the regressions, everything turned out higher for the servant leaders, than transformational leaders.
