Abstract
This study aimed to: (1) explore leadership styles in Canadia Bank Plc based on Bass’s model (1985), (2) discover perceptions of staff towards the level of learning organization in the bank, and (3) investigate whether department managers’ leadership styles have significant impact on dimensions of learning organization. This study was based on Watkins and Marsick’s model and Bass’s theory so as to explore the level of learning organization and leadership styles. The data were collected from 168 staff working in the bank head office by administering questionnaire, and were analyzed by descriptive statistics and inferential statistics (multiple regression). The findings revealed that leadership styles in the bank were transformational and transactional leadership. However, transformational leadership was practiced more often than transactional leadership. The level of learning organization in the bank was at “often” level. The study further revealed that transactional leadership had more influence in cultivating learning organization than transformational leadership.
