Abstract

Purpose: 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. Design/methodology/approach: 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. Findings: 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. Originality/value: 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.
