    I am conducting a quantitative research study on the relationship between transformational leadership style and burnout, compassion fatigue, and turnover among social workers. What I am attempting to find out is if certain leadership styles are more effective in terms of motivating workers, the role transformational leadership play in the lives of social workers as well as the clients served or does leadership style matter at all. I am stuck on determining the research methodology, sampling plan as well as data collection/analysis plan. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
    My questions are:

    What would be considered the independent and dependent variables? Why?

    What null and alternative hypothesis should be tested in relation to each?

    A non-experimental correlational approach will be utilized. What kind of sample makes sense (purposive, snowball, convenience)? Why?

    How does one determine how large the sample size needs to be? Inclusion & Exclusion?

    Which variables are measured? Burnout?

    What would be some ethical challenges to considered in sampling, collection & analysis?

    What would be considered the independent and dependent variables? Why?

    The independent variable in this particular scenario would be the variable that stands alone and isn't changed by the other variables you are trying to measure, which would entail transformational leadership. Transformational leadership isn't predicated upon dependent variables such as employee burnout, turnover, or organizational commitment as it remains the same while these dependent variables can be influenced and change as a result of transformational leadership.

    What null and alternative hypothesis should be tested in relation to each?

    Effective transformative leadership is responsible for less employee burnout, less compassion fatigue, and elicits more organizational commitment from social workers. (This is ...
