Abstract:

This survey-correlational research ascertained the relationships among the teachers' locus of control, assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation and behavior, and productivity. Conducted in January 2007, this study had for participants the 131 randomly selected faculty at John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation (JBLCF). Four published data gathering instruments were utilized: DuBrin's Personal Productivity Test (1996), Rotter's Locus of Control (1996), Questionnaire on the Supervisors' Leadership Orientation (Quick,2003). Means, standard deviations, t-test for independence , One-way ANOVA, Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis, and Pearson's r were the statistical tools employed in the analysis of the obtained data. Significance level for all inferential tests was set at .05 alpha. The study found out that the teachers at the JBLCF had "very desirable productivity" and had "high" internal locus. of control. They assessed their supervisors' leadership behavior in terms of performance orientation and maintenance orientation. Teaching experience was a factor found to significantly influence the teachers' assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (people orientation), while age was a factor found to significantly influence their assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (task orientation). Finally, positive and significant relationships existed between the teachers' productivity and assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (people orientation) and assessment of the supervisors' leadership behavior (maintenance); between their assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (people) and assessment of their supervisors' leadership behavior (both performance and maintenance); and between their assessment of their supervisors' leadership behavior (performance) and assessment of their supervisor leadership behavior (maintenance). Negative but significant relationships were noted between the teachers' assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (people orientation) and their assessment of their supervisors' leadership orientation (task orientation) and assessment of their supervisors' leadership behavior (maintenance).
