AbstractIn recent researches the leadership style and motivation are very important issues for educational process. This paper intends to identify the relations between leadership and motivation for teacher from Bucovina County. The study was done in 2018 and our sample was 140 teachers. The research instruments were the Achievement Motivation Inventory (Schuler, Thornton III., & Frintrup, 2004) and the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Avolio & Bass, n.d., 2010). The inventory consists in 170 items, displayed by 17 dimensions: Persistence, Dominance, Engagement, and Confidence in Success, Flexibility, Flow, Fearlessness, Internality, Compensatory Effort, and Pride in Productivity, Eagerness to Learn, Preference for Difficult Tasks, Independence, Self-Control, Status Orientation, Competitiveness, and Goal Setting. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire assesses transformational and transactional style of leadership. From the resulted data we can notice that there are significant positive correlations between certain motivation dimensions, the teachers’ leadership style.
