Abstract

A key component of exceptional leadership is empowering people to achieve a common goal. This study focused on school leaders empowering behavior meditated by risk-taking behavior toward teachers work commitment and job satisfaction. The study utilized a descriptive-correlational design with the researcher-made online survey questionnaire as the primary instrument in gathering the data needed. The studys respondents are the 135 elementary school teachers of Dolores District, Dolores, Quezon. The data analysis revealed that school leaders empowering behaviors were significantly related to risk-taking, teachers work commitment, and job satisfaction. Likewise, risk-taking behavior was significantly associated with teachers work commitment and job satisfaction. Furthermore, the mediation analysis of risk-taking behavior to the relationship between school leaders empowering behavior and the teachers work commitment revealed that risk-taking behavior partially mediated the relationship between empowering behavior and teachers work commitment. On the other hand, based on the mediation analysis of risk-taking behavior to the relationship between school leaders empowering behavior and the teachers job satisfaction, it was revealed that risk-taking behavior does not mediate the relationship between empowering behavior and teachers job satisfaction. This demonstrates that leaders empowering and risk-taking behavior positively impact employees commitment and job satisfaction, leading to organizational change and long-term achievement.  The study recommends further testing to examine additional factors mediating the connection between empowering behavior and teachers work commitment and job satisfaction and creatively project alternative models to investigate.
