Examines the effect that leadership behaviour has on employees’ motivation to learn and perform well. Analyses the different motivations and attitudes of employees who are performance-oriented and those who are learning-oriented, and considers how leadership mode might affect this. Tests out in a survey of member of the UK Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and finds some support for the hypotheses. Concludes that these results indicate that learning organizations should consider adopting more transformational styles of leadership.
