Exploring the relationship of motivation and environmental attitudes to Servant Leadership

Sara Jo Daubert, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

This quantitative study examines the relationship between environmental attitudes and Servant Leadership and the moderating effect of motivation on this relationship. ^ Data were colleted from 269 participants from a midwestern higher education university. Structural equation modeling was used to interpret the data collected. ^ The findings of the study indicate a significant relationship between environmental attitude and four of the five subscales of Servant Leadership. There is a positive relationship between environmental attitudes and Altruistic Calling, Wisdom, Emotional Healing, and Organizational Stewardship. Originally it was hypothesized that the results would not yield a positive relationship between environmental attitude and Emotional Healing, but the hypothesis was not supported. ^ The motivational sources, Self-Concept Internal and Goal Internalization did not moderate the relationship between environmental attitude and Servant Leadership. These findings lend support to the notion that positive attitudes about the environment are important to our understanding of Servant Leadership. ^
