Abstract: This study finds that the top management team (TMT) conflicts and a coalition are of great importance and an essential component of any organisation. This has numerous significant motivational or disenchanting implications because they may envisage work and performance in ways that are unaccounted for by prevailing motivation practices. We hypothesise that TMT structure affects overall performance in relation to organisational decision-making ability and retention programs. We further construct that the role of TMT revolves around the head of the outcome of statistical analysis. The study confirms that conflict among TMT and coalition of team members against change or diversity is significantly associated with decision-making ability and executive retention programs. We find coherence between MD leadership credentials and TMT conflict and coalition. Model estimation and coefficient of determination for TMT conflict, organisational decision-making ability and leadership performance yielded significant results.

Keywords: TMT conflicts; MD leadership; decision-making ability; TMT retention programs; conflict resolution.
