Abstract

Transformational leadership is the process by which leaders construct a vision for the organization and, through communication and motivation, meet the high-level needs of employees, gain their acceptance of the organization’s goals, change the organization’s original values, interpersonal relationships, and organizational culture, and pursue superior organizational benefits. The teacher job satisfaction refers to the general attitude of teachers towards their profession and working conditions. The job satisfaction of private secondary school teachers in Wenzhou is low, especially in terms of compensation, benefits and promotion opportunities, and they are basically dissatisfied with the rules and regulations and professional identity. The purpose of this study is to study the relationship among principals’ transformational leadership, teachers’ psychological capital and teachers job satisfaction, and to construct a theoretical model of the influence of principals’ transformational leadership on teachers’ job satisfaction with teachers’ psychological capital as the intermediary variable, thus putting forward feasible countermeasures for private secondary schools in Wenzhou to improve teachers job satisfaction. The study uses a questionnaire survey to collect first-hand data from 882 private secondary school teachers in Wenzhou. The collected data is analyzed using SPSS and AMOS software to obtain the research result. According to the findings of the study, private secondary schools in Wenzhou should be based on the mechanism of the principal’s transformational leadership and teachers’ job satisfaction, and the principals of private secondary schools should be given strategic suggestions to improve teachers’ job satisfaction in four aspects: adjusting the principal’s leadership style, giving teachers individualized consideration, emphasizing school inspirational motivation, and developing teachers’ psychological capital to help build their teaching force.

Keywords: Transformational leadership, Teacher job satisfaction, Psychological capital.
