    Abstract

    Kajian ini bertujuan menilai hubungan antara gaya kepemimpinan penyelia dan prestasi kerja jurutera dan kejayaan pekerjaan subjektif. Ia juga menilai kesan pembolehubah pementoran terhadap hubungan antara gaya kepemimpinan dan prestasi kerja serta kesan pembolehubah pementoran terhadap hubungan antara gaya kepemimpinan dan kejayaan pekerjaan subjektif. Kajian ini menggunakan tinjauan sampel rentas bahagian, yang mana sejumlah 340 borang soal selidik telah dikumpul daripada jurutera-jurutera yang bekerja di syarikat pembuatan elektrik dan elektronik yang besar di sekitar Selangor, Pulau Pinang, Johor and Sarawak. Semua data dianalisis menggunakan teknik Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) untuk menguji pembentukan hipotesis. Dua dapatan utama telah diperoleh: Pertama, gaya kepemimpinan transformasional didapati merupakan peramal yang lebih baik kepada kedua-dua prestasi kerja jurutera dan kejayaan pekerjaan subjektif jika dibandingkan dengan gaya kepemimpinan transaksional. Kedua, hubungan positif antara gaya kepemimpinan transformasional dan kejayaan pekerjaan subjektif adalah lebih kuat apabila pementoran yang baik diberikan oleh penyelia. This study intends to examine the relationships between supervisors’ leadership styles and engineers’ job performance and subjective occupational success. It also examines the moderating impact of mentoring on the relationship between leadership styles and job performance as well as the moderating impact of mentoring on the relationship between leadership styles and subjective occupational success. A cross-sectional sample survey field study was employed and a total of 340 usable questionnaires were collected from the engineers presently serving in the large scale electrical and electronics manufacturing companies located in Selangor, Penang, Johor and Sarawak. Data were analyzed using Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) technique to test the hypotheses developed. Two major findings were obtained: First, transformational leadership style was found a better predictor to both the engineers’ job performance as well as subjective occupational success compared to that of transactional leadership style. Second, the positive relationship between transformational leadership style and subjective occupational success was stronger when the mentoring received from supervisors is high.
