Leadership Style, Climate, Commitment and Corporate Performance

Andreas Budihardjo


The success of a company is dependent on its leader, especially on her or his leadership style, and
commitment. In addition, organizational learning climate might have an influence on its performance.
This study attempts to examine the influence of leadership dimensions, affective commitment and
organizational learning climate on corporate performance. In particular, this study aims to find out which
of variables contribute significantly to the corporate effectiveness. This study finds out that affective
commitment and executor (leadership style) contribute significantly to the corporate performance. In
spite of the fact that learning climate is not correlated significantly with corporate performance, it still
plays an important role as it is significantly correlated with leadership dimensions and affective
commitment. The samples in this study are experienced senior managers hold an MBA degree; therefore,
the generalization of the findings must be carefully taken.
