Abstract

The paper examines the moderating effects of followers’ personal values over the relationship between paternalistic leadership and followers’ outcomes. The results show when subordinates hold strong values on justice, moral leadership is more influential in affecting subordinates’ work attitude and behavior. The findings of this study not only enrich the leadership literature but also provide meaningful managerial implications. They suggest that benevolent leadership containing of individualized care, helping, understanding and forgiving (Cheng et al., 2004) is the most effective component of paternalistic leadership.
