The influence of transformational and democratic leadership on people's motivation to achieve their organization goals.
The purpose of this study is to identify and analyze the influence of transformational and democratic leadership on people’s motivation to achieve their organization’s goals. A case study of Larry Page, the CEO of Alphabet and Google, is presented to identify his leadership features and the impact on individual and organizational behavior at Google. Furthermore, a research survey and subjective analysis was conducted to gather perspectives on the transformational and democratic leaders’ characteristics. The survey delivered nine questions to 108 respondents with the response rate of 90%, including different ages, genders, and nationalities. From the survey it was found that the transformational and democratic leadership significantly increases individual motivation to achieve the organizational goals. For instance, individuals would be engaged and productive if their leaders listen to their opinions and give feedback. On the contrary, the leaders who poorly apply bounded rationality and do not have a good emotional management technique will decrease the motivation and performance. In conclusion, the transformational and democratic leadership noticeably affects people’s motivation and satisfaction in their organization.Keywords: transformational leadership, democratic leadership, motivation, individual behavior, organizational behavior, organizational development, Larry Page, Google
