Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to review lecturers’ perceptions on the leadership style of chairwomen and also its relationship with the motivational level of the lecturers in the National University of Malaysia (UKM). This descriptive quantitative study was carried out using the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire (LBDQ) and a Questionnaire Measure of Individual Differences in Achieving Tendency (QMAT). This study involved 100 respondents from five departments in the National University of Malaysia (UKM). Analysis of the findings were obtained using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, ANOVA and Pearson correlation analysis of level ± = .05. Findings showed that the lecturers' perceptions on the leadership style of the chairwomen in the National University of Malaysia (UKM) are quite satisfactory overall. Although the leadership style of the chairwomen based on the task-structure dimension is more dominant than the consideration dimension, both are found to be only at a moderate level. From the aspect of motivational level, findings showed that lecturers’ motivations towards their tasks are at a satisfactory level. The study also found that there was no significant difference towards the lecturers' perceptions on the style of leadership of the chairwomen based on the demographic factors of the lecturers. Similarly, there was no significant difference shown on lecturers' perceptions of the chairwomen’s motivational level based on the demographic factors of the chairwomen, except for the age factor. However, there is a significant relationship between the level of motivation for the chairwomen and the lecturers’ perceptions on the style of leadership of the chairwomen. This confirms that the higher the perception of the lecturers on the leadership style of the chairwomen, the higher the motivational level of the lecturers. This study supports the relevant findings and general assumptions that the leadership style of chairwomen does affect the motivational level of lecturers.
