Abstract [en]

May  front‐line  managers’  psychosocial  work  context  be  an  antecedent  to  transformational leadership? Consistent with the classic job demand‐control model (Karasek, 1979) and with the extended model where social support is included (Johnson and Hall, 1988), it is assumed that managers’  ratings  in  concordance  with  an  active  work  situation  (of  job  demands,  decision autonomy   and   social   support)   positively   predict   their   employees’   ratings   of   them   as transformational leaders. Workplaces (36) with complete answers from both managers (36) and employees (191) were selected. Only managers’ ratings of control (measured as job decision autonomy) showed significance and explained about nine percent of the variance of employees’ ratings of transformational leadership.
