Keywords:Communication styles, Decision-making styles, Digital leadership, Teachers and job performance.
It is impossible to emphasize how crucial teachers' job performance is because it depends on several variables. However, little is known about digital leadership, communication, and decision-making styles. Some variables have been explored by scholars. This study was inspired by the need to investigate the job performance of public primary school teachers in Oyo State. Among other things, Vroom's Expectancy Theory was used in this study. The respondents were chosen using a multi-stage sample procedure with a basic random sampling technique. The survey drew a total of 643 participants from the three senatorial districts. The structured Teachers' Questionnaire (TQ) was validated, and the reliability of the tool was assessed using Cronbach's Alpha. Frequency counts, percentages, bar graphs, standardised coefficients and linear multiple regression (ANOVA, also known as analysis of variance), were used to analyze the data. It is used to calculate the difference between the means of three or more independent variables on a dependent variable. The findings of the test of hypotheses show that public primary school teachers' job performance in Oyo State is influenced by a combination of digital leadership, communication, and decision-making styles (F (3,640) = 3156.318; P 0.05). This study also discovered that the state's public primary school teachers' job performance is positively influenced by digital leadership, communication, and decision-making styles. It is advised that the government review the laws, policies, and rules that control the teaching profession and enhance educational technology, especially in public primary schools.
