Abstract


This Paper examines the effects of transformational leadership style on workers' performance variables of job satisfaction, communication, and teamwork in Dangote Cement Company Plc. Obajana, the leading Cement Company in Nigeria. A sample size of 320 workers was drawn from a total population of 1866 workers of the company across 17 departments. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ – 5X) survey was used for data collection. Correlation and regression analysis was conducted to assess workers performance ability. The results showed that: transformational leadership attitudes of managers in the cement company did not promote job satisfaction and teamwork, but significantly stimulate communication among workers and their supervisors in the cement company. The paper concluded that the application of only one leadership style was not enough for the company. The study recommends the use of more leadership styles to see if such leadership attitudes can promote job satisfaction and teamwork; as well improve on the use of transformational leadership subscales of idealized influence (attribute and behavior)
and individual consideration to further consolidate the company's communication capability.
