In the eyes of employees, can leaders represent their organizations? To what extent does the relationship with the leadership influence employee’s attitude towards his or her organization?

Study shows the important role leaders playing in retaining talents. High quality relationship with leaders can increase employees’ organizational loyalty. Therefore, in corporate management practices, attention has to be paid to fostering relationships between leaders at all levels and their subordinates, as the loyalty to leaders can be transformed into loyalty to organizations.

Leaders also need to be very organised on a personal level, and able to manage themselves and their time, so that they can spend time doing what they need to do, and not on other tasks.

As well as, organising their time and their teams, leaders need to spend a bit of time on themselves, and particularly on their self-motivation. A leader who lacks self-motivation will struggle to motivate others, as people are quick to detect a lack of sincerity.

After all, without followers, there are no leaders.

Leaders need skills in working with others on a one-to-one and group basis, and a range of tools in their armoury to deal with a wide range of situations.

Psychological empowerment is an important way to translate good superior-subordinate relationships into organizational commitment. And it’s good way to increase their sense of belonging and responsibility.
