This study investigated, the effect of leadership style on  Employee Motivation, A study of Nigeria Breweries.  The main objective of the study is to find out the leadership style in Nigeria Breweries, and the effect of this style on motivation. In carrying out this survey, the researcher administered questionnaire. A sample size of 200 consisting of the employees in the company and a population of 400 staffs. 200 questionnaires were not distributed, 166 were collected, 23 were not returned and 11 were not properly filled. Simple percentage were used to analyze the data. There were findings and Recommendations were made that efforts should be made to encourage women to take up leadership roles. Also that leaders should learn how to take empower others to work and control should not be strictly a management affair; finally leadership by good example cannot be over emphasized, because leaders will not only obtain obedience and respect from followers but also increased performance.




1.1 Background of the Study

In any organization, large difference can be observed among leaders and subordinates based on the performance of their work roles. Some employees show enthusiasm and initiative in the exercise of their responsibilities. Others do as they are required in a regimented and conscientious manner and seldom show the creativity expected on the job, thus performing below standards. The situations therefore result in a number of questions being raised. Why the differences in performance? Do the high performance employees possess more creative ability than others? It seems much more plausible that a large part of the differences among employees in the performance of their job is the result of the motivational differences and leadership style as applied by their superiors or leaders.

The relationship between leadership and employee motivation cannot therefore be divorced. A leader by virtue of his position of authority is accountable to the success of his organization. This is the good attainment, which hinges on a number of factors ranging from leadership style to the encouragement or motivational incentives given to the employee. Performance is a function of ability, motivation and availability of relevant resources planned, organized, directed and co-ordinated by leader in a work environment.

The result of Elton Mayo’s Hawthorne experiment between 1924 and 1932 provided a basis for group activity in an organization. It implies that the leaders must work hand-in-hand with his subordinates to achieve goals. He postulates that “once group collaboration is achieved the work relation in the workplace may reach a cohesion that may resist the destructive effects of any adaptive society”.

1.2 Statement of the Problem

The main issue of this research work seeks to answer is whether the leadership style exhibited by those in authority serve as motivational factor to their subordinates or if reverse is the case. Leadership style plays a vital role in every organisation and there is need to realize that there are no general consensus on what constitutes the best leadership style. Leadership style includes autocratic, democratic, laissez faire, transactional and transformational each of these has there own far reaching effects or implications on the management and employee. In tackling the problem, effort will be made to define leadership and leadership styles, motivation theories and techniques and examine how such style influence employees’ motivation in an organization.

1.3 Objective of the Study

- To ascertain the hindrances to effective leadership style.

1.4 Research Questions

The following are tentative research questions formulated to have a clear focus of the study.

1) There are positive influences leadership trend can be?

2) There are factors responsible for poor performance? 3) There are leadership style adopted by Nigerian breweries?

4) There are effects of leadership style on employee motivation?

 1.5  Significance of the Study

The significance of this study to the organization in Nigeria, and labour in general cannot be over-emphasized. Situations demand what operates in an environment. Individual differences make people react differently. This therefore poses different attitude or behaviours in a work environment. The leadership style of individual leader is therefore influenced by this and this determines whether a leader believes in motivating subordinates before he could perform or not. This study will therefore probe into such relationship between the leaders and the employees.

The needs and desires of employees differ from time to time in a working environment. What happens to employees at theory working place had profound effect on their life, upon the society and the organization they work for and such effect on impact cannot be ignored if the quality of life in the society is to be desirable. In organizational environment, the interpersonal relationship between the leaders and the subordinates will enhance a team spirit; improve performance because the leader will be able to identify the needs and desires of the subordinates.

The findings of this research study would assist the management of any organization to fashion out their policies in the direction that will positively affect their employees’ attitudes and behaviour on the job and how rooms can be created for improvement or performance through the implementation of relevant motivational techniques.

It is also anticipated that the results of this research study would contribute to a fuller comprehension of the relationship between the management and the subordinates (employees) so that tension in the work environment, labour turnover, absenteeism, etc would be reduced.

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
