Abstract

Research about leaders in Malaysian public sectors remains largely underexplored. The leaders at the Ministry of Education, Malaysia (MOEM) are come from PTD (administration) and DG (education) officer scheme. This study investigates of influence tactics of the 18 leaders at MOEM as perceived by their subordinates using survey data from 56 respondents of six divisions MOEM. The instrument, Influence Tactics Behaviour (IBQ), were administered in order to get data for this study. Using many facets Rasch model (a multi-rater analysis), three leaders in each division were assessed by 10 subordinates (act as raters). The findings show certain construct such as rational persuasion and inspirational appeal are the most common tactic used by the leaders, meanwhile construct exchange, pressure and personal appeals are seldom used by the leaders as perceived by subordinates. In terms of influence tactics behaviour the subordinates seen there are one PTD (administration) officers and two DG (education) officers are slightly better at demonstrating IBQ.
