by Anderson, Roberta Bobbie, Ph.D., Capella University, 2019, 150; 27541702
Abstract (Summary)

The focus of this quantitative study was to examine the predictive relationship between leadership style and turnover intervention, moderated by job satisfaction for female millennials in nonprofit organizations in the Midwest of the United States. It addressed a gap in the literature since the effect of job satisfaction on leadership style and turnover intention was not known. This quantitative study also extended the full range leadership theory to this population. The findings may help leaders who need to adapt their leadership style to improve job satisfaction and decrease turnover intention for female millennial employees. The research answered the question to what extent does female millennial job satisfaction moderate the predictive relationship between female millennial employee perception of leadership style and female millennial employee turnover intention. Three subquestions were also addressed, including (a) to what extent does female millennial employee perception of leadership style influence female millennial employee turnover intention, (b) to what extent does female millennial employee perception of leadership style influence female millennial job satisfaction, and, (c) to what extent does female millennial job satisfaction influence female millennial turnover intention? This was a quantitative, nonexperimental study to investigate the potential link between the variables that used three existing survey instruments (Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire- 5x rater form, Abridged Job in General Scale and the Staying or Leaving Index). This nonexperimental study examined female millennials (N = 92). Data analysis was completed using hierarchical multiple linear regression, and a moderation analysis was applied to examine the effect of female millennial job satisfaction on the predictive relationship between female millennial perception of leadership style and female millennial turnover intention. No statistically significant relationship was found for the moderating variable while results for the other three questions indicated statistically significant relationships.
