The quality of foremen, handymen, and workers plays an important role in improving the building quality. In this case,
fi eld implementers should not only possess communication ability with their site engineers, site managers, and the
workers, but also technical and managerial ability to make a direct relationship with the foremen, skilled handymen
or blue-collar workers. From the organizational relationship, fi eld implementers should be able to implement the work
drawing with a certain method of implementation in order to create a building by optimizing the available resources.
The objective of this present research is to test and analyze the actualization of the leadership model adopted by
the fi eld implementers in infl uencing the contractor employees’ motivation and performance. This research was conducted
in Contractors with grades 5, 6, and 7 in Malang, Surabaya, Blitar, and Probolinggo cities. The fi ndings of this
present research are as follows: (1) a combinational leadership signifi cantly infl uenced the employees’ performance;
(2) work motivation signifi cantly infl uenced the improvement of the employees’ performance; (3) task- and personoriented
leadership and liberalization leadership styles indirectly infl uenced the employees’ performance through
motivation. In the three relationships, the leadership position is very important since it would give great changes of
employees’ work motivation and performance.
