PhD Track (Substitutes for) Leadership: A Followers's Perspective

This research project focuses on how leadership and substitutes of leadership affect the feelings, thoughts and behaviours of subordinates. By emphasising interplays between specific leadership approaches, both constructive and destructive, and motivational concepts (e.g. intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation), we aim to elucidate the mechanisms that make subordinates behave the way they do, and thus find answers to the question “how can we make employees behave more effectively?”. Through these efforts, contributions could be made to the current understandings and literature on leadership and follower behaviours.
