Leadership Style, Motivation and Delegation In One Selected Tertiary Institution In Kogi State, Nigeria
Leadership, delegation and Motivation are problems besetting all organizations in the world. This study was therefore carried out in a tertiary institution in Kogi state, Nigeria with a view to identifying the leadership style currently practiced in the chosen institution and how it can be sustained. The level of delegation and motivation of staff was also studied. It is expected that at the end of the study, a baseline data will be provided. Self study questionnaire comprising twenty items were used and these were broken down into three sections. These are leadership style, Motivation, and delegation of authority. The questionnaires were administered on a sampled population of 100 persons spreading across all categories of staff over a period of six (6) months. The results obtained showed that democratic (participative) leadership style is practiced in the institution and that this leadership style is sustainable. There are sufficient levels of motivation and delegation of authority in the tertiary institution and these could improve staff performance thereby enhancing the realization of its goals and objectives. This is also found to be sustainable. A baseline data has therefore been established for the leadership style, motivation level and delegation of authority for the institution.
