The Influence Study of Transformational Leadership in University on Teacher's Organizational Commitment: The Construction and Verification of a Theoretical Model



There is close relationship between teacher’s organizational commitment in university and educational quality. How did the leadership in university take effect on teacher’s organizational commitment? It is an urgent problem to explore and solve. This paper proposes a theoretical analytical model including transformational leadership, goal setting, self-efficacy, goal self-concordance and organizational commitment on the basis of discussing the function and relationship of mediating factor about self-efficacy, goal setting and goal self-concordance between transformational leadership in university and teacher’s organizational commitment. Using the sample of 309 data in China and Structural Equation Model, the present research empirically tests the direct and indirect effect of transformational leadership. The research changes our views on the role of goal setting, self-efficacy and goal self-concordance in the function mechanism of transformational leadership. At the same time, the results provide some references for leaders of universities on how to perfect the effectiveness of leadership by improving teachers’ autonomous motivation and organizational commitment.
