BY: Wirkom Gilbert Sunjo | Department of Business Studies | Strategic Human Resource Management

Abstract

This research investigates and compares the relationship between organizational leadership and employee performance, in the public and private secondary schools in Buea Sub-division. The specific objectives of the research were to determine the dominant leadership styles in the public and private secondary schools, to examine the relationship between leadership styles and employee performance, to investigate factors influencing leadership behavior in public and private secondary schools and to find out the challenges faced by leaders in public and private secondary schools. Information was gathered, using questionnaires, from a sample of 135 leaders and 405 subordinate (raters). A Questionnaire was designed based on the Blake and Mouton leadership grid to determine leadership style within the organization. Employee performance was captured and recorded using data on the student’s performance at the General Certificate of Education Examinations. Leadership and its traits were identified as the independent variables and employee performance as the dependent variable. Data Obtained from the research instruments was then statistically analyzed. Through the Chi square Goodness of fit test, it was concluded that the dominant leadership style in public schools is not significantly different from that of private schools, and that there is a significant relationship between employee performance and organizational leadership. This research therefore adds a new dimension to organizational leadership and employee performance, since no similar study has been conducted in the school. As this research takes place within the context of the Secondary Education in Buea sub-division, it contributes to the bank of findings relating to the concept of leadership in public and private establishments in Cameroon Download
