Comparison Matrix Paper
In the comparison matrix chart three different empirical research articles were used and compared. The first article, by Wright and Pandey. Transformational Leadership in the Public Sector: Does Structure Matter?, Emery and Barker, The Effect of Transactional and Transformational Leadership Styles on Organizational Commitment and Job Satisfaction of Customer Contact Personnel, and last The Mother Co-parent Relationship and Youth Adjustment: A Study on African American Single Mother Families by Shook, Jones, Forehand, Dorsey and Brody.
Wright and Pandey article one, was based on transformational leadership. In this article the public’s organization performance is based on the higher levels of transformational leadership qualities (Wright and Pandey 2010). In article two the research indicates that there are some similarity about transformational leadership but also compares transactional leadership styles with managers and the satisfaction of customer contact personnel. The article compares the two leadership styles and uses data to present the results of personnel performance and job satisfaction based on transformational and transactional leadership styles (Emery and Barker, 2007). In the third article the relationship and youth adjustment of African American Single mother families are being examined. This study focuses on the association between confliction and supportive aspects of the relationships that single mothers have with their non-malarial co parents with and emphasis on negative and positive outcomes among 260 African American youth from single mother homes (Shook, Jones, Forehand, Dorsey, and Brodey, 2010).
