Introduction: Nursing leadership style is effective in the successful and timely performance
of nursing care. Besides, nurses' procrastination will have high casualties and financial
costs. This study aimed to determine the relationship between staff procrastination and
nurse managers' leadership styles.
Methods: This was a descriptive correlational study conducted at social welfare hospitals
in 2013. The study population consisted of employees (n = 950) and managers (n = 70) of
nursing and midwifery departments. All the managers and 290 employees were randomly
selected by stratified method. Data were collected by demographic, organizational procrastination
and Bardenz-Metzkas leadership style (LBDQ) questionnaires, of which the
validity and reliability had been confirmed. Data were analyzed with correlation coefficient
at 0.05 significance level.
Results: Most of the managers had average task-oriented and people-oriented leadership
styles, but the focus of the executers on task-oriented leadership style was greater. The staff
had low procrastination (52.46 ± 12.99). People-oriented style of the managers had weak
inverse correlation with procrastination scale (r = -0.176) and inefficiency subscale (r =
-0.191) of the nursing staff; also, task-oriented leadership style had a weak inverse correlation
with subscale of abomination from task performance (r = -0.110) in staff, but the
relationships was not significant.
Conclusions: Lack of procrastination in nursing and midwifery staff is a positive phenomenon
that affects the performance of the organization. Due to the lack of relationship between
leadership style and procrastination, future researches in larger extent is proposed.
