Leadership Styles of Nurses Managers and the Effects on Work Satisfaction and Intent to Stay of Staff Nurses Purpose: This study was designed to examine the relationship between leadership style, nurses' work satisfaction and intent to stay within the hospital organization at the unit level. Framework of the Study: Bass' theory of transformational leadership served as the framework for the study. Methodology: Ninety-nine nurses completed the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ), part B of the Index of Work Satisfaction (IWS), and two appended items on intent to stay. The principal investigator visited each of the 13 units for one hour on both the day and night shifts. Signs were posted informing the staff nurses of the study and data collection times. Names and demographic data were not collected so that completion of the questionnaires served as consent to participate. To further maintain anonymity the investigator required participation of at least six nurses on each unit. Staff nurses were given printed instructions on the purpose and nature of the study. All participants were informed that the leadership items referred to their unit level nurse manager. The staff nurses inserted their sealed envelopes containing the completed questionnaires in a response box. Descriptive statistics and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation coefficients were used for data analysis. All correlations reflect the nursing unit as the unit of analysis. Power analysis required at least 12 units for a meaningful relationship at the .05 level for a one tailed test. Results: The three components showing the highest overall mean scores on the IWS were: nurse-nurse interaction, professional status, and autonomy. There were significant correlations between autonomy and all five of the transformational leadership dimensions. There was also a statistical significant relationship between intent to say and autonomy
