The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between empowering leadership (IMP) and participative decision-making (PDM) and its effect on learning goal orientation (LGO) and creative work involvement (CWI) within the expatriate society of the UAE.
The paper suggests a theoretical model derived from survey responses gathered from expatriates used in multinational organizations located in the Jabal Ali Free Trade Zone of Dubai.
The results show that participative decision-making partially mediates the relationship between IMP and learning goal orientation. Furthermore, the results show that participative decision-making partially mediates the relationship between IMP and creative work involvement.
This research adds to the existing body of knowledge on international business by investigating the effects that PDMand IMP have on CWI and LGO of expatriates.
