Abstract: The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) is one of the most commonly used measures for evaluating a subordinate's perceptions of his/her supervisor's transformational , transactional , and passive leadership behaviors (Avolio , 1995; Bass , 1998; 1997; Bass and Avolio , 1995; Dumdum , Lowe , Avolio , 2002; Lowe , Kroeck , and Sivasubramaniam , 1996). Since its original development (Bass , 1985) , the MLQ has been regularly used in organizational research , appearing in over 6 , 000 publications. Although there have been several previously conducted meta-analyses on the MLQ (Leong and Fischer , 2011; Ilies , Nahrgang , and Morgeson , 2007; Harms and Credeʹ , 2010; Kuopplala , 2008) , it has been almost 10 years since the last review. Subsequently , the present study sought to update the literature with a novel meta-analysis of the relevant research studies that have been published during the past ten years. Specifically , this study examined the relationship between the MLQ and critical organizational variables such as leadership effectiveness , job satisfaction , organizational commitment , and organizational citizenship. Overall , for followers of transformational leadership was positively related to organizational citizenship behaviors , leadership effectiveness , job satisfaction and organizational commitment whereas , for followers of transactional leadership the results were mixed with the organizational outcomes.
