Chapter 9: The role and importance of leadership in creating psychologically healthy workplaces
American Psychological Association’s psychologically healthy workplaces model includes five organizational practices: (1) employee recognition; (2) employee involvement; (3) employee growth and development; (4) healthy and safety; and (5) work–life balance. Although these practices are recommended to organizations, only leaders have a unique position and power to implement them. This chapter discusses how different leadership models influence employee health and well-being in relation to these five practices. The first section presents the role of effective leadership models (i.e. transformational, R.I.G.H.T, positive, authentic and ethical leadership) and the second section presents the role of ineffective leadership models (i.e. passive and abusive leadership) on employee health and well-being.
