Transformational Leadership, Conflict Resolution And Implementation Of Constituency Development Fund Construction Projects In Public Secondary Schools In Kisumu County, Kenya.
Transformational leadership manifests itself in four perspectives which include idealized behavior, individual consideration, Intellectual stimulation, and inspirational motivation. The purpose of this study was to explore transformational leadership, conflict resolution and implementation of CDF construction projects. The objectives were to examine how idealized behavior influences Implementation of CDF construction projects, to establish how individualized consideration influence implementation of CDF construction projects, to determine how intellectual stimulation influence implementation of CDF construction projects, to establish how inspirational motivation influence implementation of CDF construction projects, and to establish the moderating influence of conflict resolution on the relationship between transformational leadership and implementation of CDF construction projects. The study used Expost facto design, Multifactor leadership Questionnaire, Thomas Kilman Instruments, Interview as tools for data collection. Qualitative data was analyzed and presented in themes while quantitative data was analyzed descriptively using percentage, frequencies, mean, and standard deviation. Inferentially, Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis were used as tool of analsis to test for significance among various hypotheses. Five hypotheses were formulated and subsequently tested to establish the influence of conflict resolution. It was therefore concluded that there is a regression relationship between transformational leadership combined with conflict resolution and implementation of CDF projects. It is therefore recommended that government should initiate coaching in transformational leadership so that it could help to equip leaders with those behaviors lacking in their repertoire. Policy makers to organize for house leadership training in which internal experts or external consultants on transformational leadership are tasked to design training programme that are tailored to the needs of particular institution to supplement coaching. Community, construction activities and all Non-governmental organizations need to understand that conflicts needs to be managed rather than to be avoided. Suggestions for further research. A study can be replicated in a larger number of schools and in more counties. A study can be carried out to investigate the influence of other factors like transformational and transactional leadership, communication management, project culture, time management and conflict resolution on Project Implementation.
