THE IMPACT OF THE MANAGER ON THE SUCCESS OF THE PUBLIC VS PRIVATE ORGANISATION IN THE POST-CRISIS PHASE: A CASE STUDY OF COVID-19 IN THE ARAB SECTOR IN ISRAEL
Leadership is essential for success in today's business environment. Leadership in organisations is the ability to influence and guide a group of people to achieve a common goal. The role of leadership in organisations has become crucial in recent times. This study identified the gap in research and aimed to explore the influence of leadership styles on employee motivation in the post-pandemic period in the context of Arab companies in Israel. In the present study, the researcher adopted a mixed methodological research design. This research design allowed the researcher to conduct both quantitative and qualitative research. For the quantitative research, a sample of 450 was selected in the current study, which was a representation of employees in the Arab sector in Israel. The sample was selected from Arab organisations in order to ensure the representation of Arab leaders in the study. In addition to that, to conduct the qualitative research methodology, a sample of size 60 was selected in order to ensure the representation of managers in the sample. the results suggested that leadership styles have an influence on employee motivation. The researcher concluded that in Arab organisations, most leaders are autocratic in Israel. The results also suggested that leaders that follow a transformational leadership style have no significant impact on employee motivation in the earlier results. Moreover, the thematic analysis also highlighted that the transformational leadership style has a higher impact on the motivation of employees. The findings of the current study also suggested that Covid-19 has affected the leadership styles in organisations. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has presented leadership challenges for Arab organisations across several areas.
