Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational study, using the Motivation and Leadership Survey (Finzel, 2004; Miller, 2005), was to test Herzberg’s theory on motivation by correlating intrinsic motivators and preferred leadership styles to determine how they might affect medical personnel’s performance within Walter Reed Army Medical Center and National Naval Medical Center, located near Washington, D.C. Independent variables included achievement, advancement, recognition, responsibility, and work. Dependent variables included great man, group, trait, contingency, transactional and transformational leadership styles. Two hundred seventy-eight medical personnel responded to a 33-question survey. Relevant data results showed medical personnel (a) wanted autonomy in their work area, (b) requested synergy with their leaders, and (c) preferred transformational leadership for guidance.
