Acute care hospitals exist within an increasingly competitive and regulated environment. These challenges are placing acute care hospitals under stress and are requiring these organization's leaders to align themselves with new initiatives including adjustments to both leadership styles and types of organizational cultures. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of leadership styles and types of organizational cultures on organizational outcomes in acute care hospitals. This research studied the prevalence of transformational and transactional leadership styles and type of organizational cultures within the organizations. A conceptual model, based upon the work of Bass and Avolio (1993) suggested that congruency between leadership styles and types of organizational culture; would lead to improved organizational outcomes, including organizational effectiveness and employee satisfaction
This research asked employees from eight acute care hospitals to rate their individual hospital's leadership styles and types of organizational culture. In addition, the 107 employees reported demographic data. The research utilized a Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Form 5X) to assess the leadership style and the Organizational Description Questionnaire to assess the organizations type of culture
Analysis included multiple regression, and a path analysis to determine causality between the variables. The results indicated that employees perceived that congruency between leadership style and type of organizational culture resulted in high levels of organizational outcomes. Incongruency between the independent variables resulted in lower organizational outcomes. The findings also revealed that within each hospital multiple styles of leadership and types of organizational culture existed. The analysis also suggested that multiple styles and types of cultures were a normal and regular finding
The results of this study indicate that hospitals should evaluate leadership styles as well as their organization's type of culture. The hospital's leaders should also create a process for predicting which departments or job roles should be transformational versus transactional. The leaders should also develop programs to implement changes as appropriate
