A growing body of literature has focused on the influence that organizational leaders have on employee well-being. Most of this literature has focused on leadership style – the way leaders treat employees – and there is clear evidence linking both negative (e.g., abusive) and positive (e.g., transformational) leadership styles to employee well-being. Leaders can also serve as a health resource in organizations and interventions teaching leaders supportive behaviors have been effective. Finally, we conclude with a consideration of leaders’ own well-being and how it might influence employees.
