Path-goal Theory

LDRLB

Path-goal theory is half leadership, half motivational theory. It is derived from expectancy theory, which argued that employees will be motivated if they believe that a) putting in more effort will yield better job performance b) better job performance will lead to rewards, such as an increase in salary or benefits and c) these rewards are valued by the employee in question. It also builds on a motivational theory as its foundation. Intro to Leadership Theory.
