Abstract

This study examines whether the various leadership roles undertaken by public sector managers have an important association with subordinates' levels of affective commitment to the organization. Our empirical findings suggest that not all leadership practices matter. It appears that only relations-oriented and change-oriented leadership, and to a far lesser extent integrity-oriented leadership, have a substantive association with affective organizational commitment. Task-oriented leadership and, to a large degree, integrity-oriented leadership, are found not to matter much for employees with lower levels of affective commitment, but they look to strengthen fondness of the organization among those with already high levels of affective commitment. Results also suggest that the diversity-oriented leadership role has no association with affective commitment to the organization.
