Abstract (Summary)

Transformational leadership research has been extensive over the last several decades (Bass & Stogdill, 2008). While there have been a number of studies of transformational leadership within the Indian culture, there are less which explore the Indian transformational leadership and Indian follower relationship from the follower’s perspective. The researcher has not come across research which measures the relationship, if any, between the Indian transformational leader and job satisfaction of the Indian follower. Research has been conducted on overall Indian employee job satisfaction but none which includes the variables of Indian manager and Indian follower. A quantitative study is proposed to examine on whether a relationship exists between the variables of Indian transformational leadership and the job satisfaction of Indian followers. To measure Indian transformational leadership, the researcher will be using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) which has been used by researchers for many decades (Avolio & Bass, 2004). To measure job satisfaction, the researcher will be using the Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) which also has been used by researchers for many years (Spector, 1997). Further methodology of the study can be found in Chapter 3. The findings and conclusions of the study will be reviewed in Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 respectively.
