Group cohesiveness, Organizational commitment, Transformational leadership.


This study investigated to what extent group cohesiveness is related to organizational commitment and transformational leadership. In the advent of generational transformation, it is impossible to achieve organizational goals and create win-win partnerships between supervisors and subordinates merely by resorting to organizational discipline or role behavior. This study, based on a quality interview survey, explored the influence of team cohesiveness on organizational commitment with transformational leadership as a moderating variable. Literature related to the real estate agency industry was firstly reviewed and compiled for overall understanding. In-depth onsite expert interviews were conducted for inducing internal and external affecting factors. Actual cases were analyzed. The influence of team behavior and group cohesiveness on organizational commitment was verified. It was found. Additionally, supervisors' positive transformational leadership and supportive behavior could lead to positive organizational cohesiveness. This is regarded as one of the key success factors of management. Transformational leadership behaviors that can boost positive group cohesiveness should be encouraged. Such behaviors can not only boost group cohesiveness but also enable the team to achieve the team goal efficiently.
