Abstract

The study examined the affect of leadership styles on the prediction of personal and job related outcomes among bank employees. Data was collected with Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Bass & Avolio, 2000), Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (Parkinson, 2006), Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (Lovibond & Lovibond, 1995), Job Satisfaction Scale (Guimaraes & Igbaria, 1992) and Turnover Intention Scale (Seashore, Lawler, Mirvis, & Cammann, 1982). Sample comprised of 300 bank employees. Findings supported hypotheses as transformational leadership positively predicted well-being and job satisfaction whereas negatively predicted stress and turnover intention among employees. Laissez-faire leadership positively predicted stress and turnover intention whereas negatively predicted well-being and job satisfaction. The study is effective in understanding the importance of leadership styles in promoting mental health and appropriate work related attitudes among employees.
