Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Does Spiritual Leadership Predict Organizational Citizenship Behavior in Christians
by Johnson, Yves Nigel, Ed.D., Grand Canyon University, 2020, 189; 28265081
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to assess to what extent, if at all, two of the dimensions of spiritual leadership (vision and hope/faith) predicted total organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) for adult Christians working in the United States. The spiritual leadership theory and the social exchange theory were the theoretical foundations that guided this study. A purposive sample of 135 adult working Christians throughout the United States was surveyed using an online survey instrument. Two linear regressions analyses suggested a relationship exists between the two dimensions of spiritual leadership and total organizational citizenship behavior. In particular, the linear regression on vision indicated a statistically significant correlation F(1, 133) = 37.74; p = .000; adjusted R2 = .215 as shown in Table 3. The R-Squared values indicated that vision accounted for 22.1% of the variance in total organizational citizenship behavior. Similarly, the results of the linear regression on hope/faith indicated a statistically significant correlation model F(1, 133) = 31.24; p = .000; adjusted R2 = .185 as shown in Table 4. The R-Squared values indicated that hope/faith accounted for 19.1% of the variance in total organizational citizenship behavior. It was concluded that there was sufficient evidence to reject the null hypotheses. The findings add to the body of literature on spiritual leadership and organizational citizenship behavior. Further, the findings are pertinent to organizational leaders seeking to maximize employee’s personal growth and are seeking to increase productivity and organizational commitment.
