Performance of home health aides remains imperative in the medical community, but understanding the potential role of consideration leadership (CL) in improving performance of home health aides in the literature has gone undetected. This paper seeks to address these issues.
The present study, using the 2007 National Home Health Aides Survey (n=3,308), aims to investigate the moderating role of consideration leadership (CL) in the relationship between injury and training among home health aides at the national level. Descriptive statistics and a hierarchical logistic regression analysis were performed.
Not all consideration practices play a positive role in the relationship between training and injury. The authors found only employee-focused consideration leadership practices, when introduced together with training, may benefit home health aides in reducing injury.
To maximize training effectiveness, leaders may need to understand the importance of their own role in training transfer processes and attempt to demonstrate adequate influence behaviors such as consideration.
This research is the first of its kind to explore the role of consideration leadership in the relationship with injury and training among home health aides.
