SILVA, Neilda de Souza Oliveira da  and  MOURAO, Luciana. The influence of leadership styles of the results of training. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp. 260-283. ISSN 1808-4281.

Whereas the training is related to other subsystems of personnel management and that this area is linked to human behavior at work, this study intends to verify that the perceived leadership style of leaders influence the impact of training on performance of subordinates when the transfer support is a control variable. To achieve this goal, we performed a research with 264 employees in a soft drinks industry located in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). The theoretical framework that supports the research of leadership was the proposal of Situational Leadership by Hersey and Blanchard. As a control variable was included to support the transfer, since there are consistent indications of their influence on the impact of training. The survey results showed significant and positive correlation between the leadership's concern with people and the leadership's concern with the production and the impact of training on the job. However, only the perception of leadership concerned with the production and support the transfer of training are predictors of the impact of training. Thus, it is expected greater impact of training events in the job performance when people are led by managers focused on production and when they receive the necessary psychosocial support for application of acquired skills.

Keywords : leadership styles; training impact at work; support the transfer of training.
