Principals’ Transformational Leadership Practices as Determinants of Organizational Commitment and Value Re-Orientation among Secondary School Teachers (Published)

This paper examined the transformational leadership practices of secondary school principals and the extent to which they predict organizational commitment and value re-orientation of teachers in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. Survey design was adopted for the study. Seven hundred and ninety-nine respondents were drawn using stratified random sampling technique from a population of 5,339 teachers for the study. One research question and two hypotheses guided the study. An instrument with 48 items titled “Principals’ Transformational Leadership Practices, Organizational Commitment and Value Re-orientation Questionnaire” was utilized for data gathering. Cronbach Alpha reliability index of the instrument was 0.88. Multiple statistical procedures such as means, standard deviation and regression analysis were employed in data analysis. The two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. From the findings it was revealed that principals’ transformational leadership practices were high, while there was a significant effect of principals’ transformational leadership practices on organizational commitment and value re-orientation of teachers. Premised on the findings of the study, it was recommended that managers of secondary education should encourage principals to adopt transformational leadership style since this has been found to positively affect organizational commitment and value re-orientation of teachers.
