Abstract

This research survey was done in relation to my studies at University Technology Malaysia (UTM) specialising in Management and Administration in Education. The main aim and objective of my study is to critically analyse women transformational leadership issues in the Government Sectors and Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs), as well the chances of women to be appointed as District Officer and Assistant District Officer in the State Administration of Sabah. Thirty (30) Sabahan women leaders are randomly selected as respondents from the five (5) Organisations in the Government Sector and (5) five NGOs for this study. The survey questionnaires were distributed to the targeted respondents to find out their needs and expectations, if any, for their views, opinions and recommendations on how to improve women opportunities for career advancement within their respective organisations and workplace in Sabah.
