 Higher Education Administrator Turnover: An Examination of Situational Leadership Styles

Employee turnover is a challenge for all organizations, including
higher education. Public universities are losing staff members who
are critical to the successful operation of these universities. 
Abstract: 
Employee turnover is a challenge for all organizations, including
higher education. Public universities are losing staff members who
are critical to the successful operation of these universities. Past
research has shown that leadership style is a key factor that affects
voluntary employee turnover. The purpose of this correlational study
is to examine leadership effectiveness, leadership adaptability, and
employee turnover intentions at a public university in Arizona. The
Situational Leadership® model was employed as the framework for
successful leadership and formed the basis for the survey questions.
The study found a significant relationship between employees’
voluntary turnover intentions and their supervisors’ leadership
effectiveness. This result suggests that as leadership effectiveness
increases, employee turnover intentions decrease. The study found no
relationship between employees’ voluntary turnover intentions and their
supervisors’ leadership adaptability, or ability to use multiple leadership
styles. Several recommendations were made for future research.
