The purpose of the quantitative research is to measure the relationship between celebrations of progressive milestones, perceived momentum, and willingness to expend extra effort as an indicator of enhanced performance among faculty and staff reporting to academic chairs in post-merger college environments. Hypothesis testing revealed that celebrations of progressive milestones correlated positively with followers' perceptions of momentum. Perceived momentum correlated positively with followers' willingness to expend extra effort, satisfaction with leadership, perceived leadership effectiveness, transformational leadership, contingent reward, and active management-by-exception. Perceived momentum correlated negatively with passive management-by-exception and laissez-faire leadership. Hierarchical regression analysis demonstrated that celebrations of progressive milestones were able to account for the variance of willingness to expend extra effort beyond the effects of transformational leadership.
