The purpose of this quantitative descriptive correlational study was to investigate a correlation between leadership style and outcomes of chief nurse executives in Magnet Status hospitals in the United States and explore if there was a dominant leadership style being used by the chef nurse executives. The research questions guiding the study were 1. What is the relationship between the chief nurse executives’ leadership style and extra effort, 2. What is the relationship between the chief nurse executives’ leadership style and effectiveness and 3. What is the relationship between the chief nurse executives’ leadership style and the nurse manager’s level of satisfaction with the chief nurse executives’ leadership?
The MLQ-5x by Avolio and Bass (2004) was used as the survey tool to collect data from the participants. The data was analyzed using the SPSS software to perform descriptive and correlational analysis. The leadership style explored in the study was the transformational, transactional and laissez-faire. Overall results from the data revealed that there was a positively statistical significance correlation between leadership style, extra effort, effectiveness and satisfaction. The findings also revealed a dominant leadership style being used among participating Magnet Status Hospital within the United States. Further studies should be initiated to investigate the leadership styles of the non-Magnet Status hospitals and determine if there is a dominant style being used by their chief nurse executives.
