Keywords:Arrogance Leadership, Job satisfaction, Organisational commitment
This study examined the relationship between arrogance leadership, teachers’ job satisfaction and organisational commitment in Lagos State tertiary institutions. Two hypotheses (tested at 0.05 level of significance) guided the study. Correlational research design was adopted for the study, while the population comprised of all lecturers in Lagos State owned tertiary institutions. The sample size was 180 lecturers after stratifying the population into University, College of Education and Polytechnic and thereafter selected through purposive sampling technique. Analysis was carried out using inferential statistics of Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient Analysis, using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 24.0. Findings indicated that a negative and non-significant relationship existed between arrogance leadership and teachers’ job satisfaction in Lagos State tertiary institutions (r = 0.986, ?>0.05) and a positive and non-significant relationship existed between arrogance leadership and organisational commitment in Lagos State tertiary institutions (r = 0.713, ?>0.05). It was concluded that arrogance leadership is present in Lagos State tertiary institutions, as evidenced in the study. The study therefore recommended that the leaders (HODs, Deans and Vice-Chancellors) of tertiary institutions should be exposed to professional development, training and opportunities particularly in leadership before placement for leadership positions.
