There is an increasing recognition that higher education institutions require highly motivated academic and administrative staff which is affected by efficient university leadership and, in its term, creates the basis for students’ high performance and excellent outcomes. The most essential strategy in reaching the success of the university is motivating the staff and encouraging them to put more effort in teaching and scientific work in order to enhance individual and organizational performance. For this reason, the role of university leadership is crucially important to encourage the staff and support them to develop professionally. The problem of motivation is closely related to innovative approaches applied by leadership which ultimately determines university high performance. Considering some specificities of university personnel, and of academic staff in particular, the need for selecting different forms of motivation is essential and is a prerequisite for the university success in general. The present research which was conducted in Georgia and Poland, in state and private universities, applied quantitative and qualitative approaches, specifically survey and interview methods. The analysis of the study is based on the results of the responses obtained from 288 research participants which helps to understand how changes in motivational model based on leadership style and innovative approach could enhance academic and administrative staff motivation in Georgian and Polish universities, as well as demonstrate the positive correlation between the highly motivated staff and university leadership.
