How leaders influence their followers’ work engagement

Abstract

Because of the worldwide economic cri­sis, an increasing number of organiza­tions have to deal with financial problems. This has forced organizations to reorgan­ise their structures and processes, and has led to a growing global competition. It seems evident that in such a situation employee work engagement is crucial. In this article, we address the role of leaders in inspiring their employees. We specifi­cally focus on the impact of transforma­tional leadership on employees’ work en­vironment and work engagement. Using specific examples, we provide leaders and coaches with tools to enhance em­ployee work engagement within a short time period.
