Introduction
Organizational commitment and leadership retention are significant issues in today’s
global economy. “As business becomes more global, more complex and more fluid, the need for
new leaders and a different type of leaders becomes more essential(Cormier, 2007, p. 262).
Cormier continued “Regardless of how accelerated leadership development programs are, the
development and incubation of new leaders takes time, further widening the gap in leadership
needed for today” (p. 262). This paper seeks to examine variables impacting organizational
commitment through utilizing qualitative and a quantitative research studies. Qualitative studies
utilize verbal descriptions of “phenomena, experiences, or processes inadequately captured by
the preconceived concepts and predefined tools…” (Kielhofner, 2006, p. 327). “In quantitative
designs, the characteristic being studied will be defined, presented, and summarized using
numbers” (Jones and Kottler, 2006, p. 11). Finally, these approaches will be compared in
relationship to their contributions to identify variables related to organizational commitment.
Qualitative Study
Cormier (2007) began by examining the literature related to women in leadership. The
literature revealed that women are now in leadership roles worldwide and women are
increasingly completing graduate degrees. “In the USA, women hold over 50 percent of
management and professional positions and over 85 percent of the Fortune 500 companies have
at least one female officer” (Cormier, p. 263). While the role of women in leadership has grown,
women continue to leave organizations. Cormier identified previous research that indicated a
woman’s commitment to an organization was negatively impacted by competing family roles
and many organizations have initiated strategies to address this issue. However, Cormier
