LEADERSHIP, SERVANT LEADERSHIP AND FUNDAMENTAL STATE OF LEADERSHIP AND COMPONENTS OF FOLLOWERS’ PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING
The purpose of the paper is to propose the framework of effects of various aspects of positive leadership on components of long-term well-being.
The paper is conceptual in nature. I use the established frameworks considered as related to positive leadership and assess the effect of each of their dimensions on components of followers’ psychological well-being.
There are complex relationships between aspects of positive leadership: transformational leadership, authentic leadership, servant leadership and fundamental state of leadership and components of followers’ psychological well-being (self-acceptance, autonomy, positive relationships with others, environmental mastery, purpose in life, personal growth). For instance intellectual stimulation, conceptual skills, helping subordinates grow and results orientation of the leader contribute to personal growth of the follower.
