Abstract

The current study is conducted with the aim to classify the impact of empowering leadership on employee behavior i.e. task performance of employees through the sequential mediation of Psycap (Psychological Capital) and employee attitude i.e. employee engagement. In the literature it has been identified that less research is conducted on the role of such types of leaders in the development of psychological capabilities in their followers. The research philosophy employed for this investigation is grounded in positivism, aligning with the study's objectives. To fulfill these objectives, a deductive approach was adopted, complemented by survey methods, and a time-lagged data collection methodology was implemented. A total of 241 respondents from the telecommunications sector related organizations were took part in the study. The subsequent data analysis was conducted by using AMOS software and employing Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) techniques. The results of the study revealed that there is a significant role of empowering leadership on the task performance of employees. Moreover, the results indicate that this relationship is mediated by both Psycap and employee engagement. This methodical and empirically driven approach contributes to the scholarly understanding of the complicated dynamics involved in the influence of empowering leadership on task performance within the specified context.
