Social processes of leadership: A new perspective on leadership and its effect on work behaviour
The paper presents a new model of social processes of leadership and their influence on work place trust and team cohesion. Social processes of leadership were derived from previous grounded theory work. Using a cross-sectional sample of 467 New Zealand managers, it is shown that the social processes of optimising and enhancing adaptability are predicting trust, which in turn is related to both task and social cohesion. The social process of resolving uncertainty has a direct effect on social cohesion. Implications for leadership research are discussed.
