PINO, Ricardo M.; AREVALO-AVECILLAS, Danny  and  PADILLA-LOZANO, Carmen. Servant leadership and job satisfaction in master of business administration students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.6, pp.205-216. ISSN 0718-5006.

The purpose of this research study was to validate the positive effect of server leadership on job satisfaction based on the social learning theory. The server leadership style emerges as an altruistic approach that prioritizes aspirations and needs of followers. A questionnaire was administered to a sample of 225 students attending the master in business administration (MBA) program at CENTRUM Católica (Peru). The method was explicative, cross-sectional, and quantitative. Data analysis included the application of techniques such as factor analysis and structural equation models. The results corroborated the positive influence of servant leadership on employees’ job satisfaction and demonstrated that the dimensions of servant leadership were faithfully replicated in the Peruvian context. These findings highlight the importance of adopting more altruistic leadership approaches in promoting job satisfaction, from which better job attitudes derive.
