Impact of Transformational Leadership on Teacher Job Satisfaction and Commitment


This systematic review examines the impact of transformational leadership on teacher motivation within private educational institutions. Drawing on a comprehensive analysis of existing literature, the study identifies key leadership behaviors—idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration—as pivotal in enhancing teacher job satisfaction, commitment, and overall motivation. Transformational leaders foster a supportive work environment characterized by trust, effective communication, professional development opportunities, and a sense of collective efficacy among educators. These factors mediate the relationship between leadership practices and teacher outcomes, highlighting transformational leadership's role in shaping positive organizational climates and enhancing teacher well-being. The findings underscore the significance of leadership in educational settings and provide practical insights for administrators aiming to improve school culture and teacher engagement. Future research should explore these dynamics across diverse cultural and educational contexts to further elucidate the universality and effectiveness of transformational leadership in fostering teacher motivation and organizational success.
