Purpose: The paper explores the mediating role of results-oriented culture in the relationship between transformational leadership and the performance of results-oriented culture in Vietnamese public service organizations.
Research motivation: Although there have been studies referring to aspects of culture as mediating transformational leadership and organizational performance in the public sector, however, studies that are concerned with the results-oriented cultural aspect are still limited. Therefore, the study aims at closing the mentioned gap by examining the effect of tranformational leadership on performance via results-oriented culture.
Design, approach and method: We surveyed senior managers, middle managers and chief accountants working at 205 public service organizations in Vietnam. By using structural model analysis (SEM) by SmartPLS 3 software, our study has several important contributions.
Main findings: The findings show that transformational leadership, result-oriented culture are positively associated with organizational performance, and that result-oriented culture is a mediating mechanism that explains how transformational leadership leads to higher performance in public service organizations.
Practical/managerial implications: The research has provided evidence that transformational leadership has a direct and indirect impact on organizational performance through results-oriented culture. These results help public service organizations in Vietnam realize the importance of applying transformational leadership style to lead and build a results-oriented culture.
