While a transformational style of leadership has long been recognised for its potential to stimulate innovation and enhance the performance of workers, a study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine recently connected this type of leadership to increased levels of employee well-being.

Christine Jacobs of the University of Cologne, together with her colleagues, stated that a inspirational leadership style can result in the well-being of employees. It does this by encouraging an atmosphere of trust with employees, and individually develops and challenges them

Evidence of a inspirational leadership style includes: facilitating the involvement of employees so that they feel they are making a valuable contribution to a common goal, the provision of intellectual stimulation and rewarding good performance with positive feedback.

The researchers found that employees who receive high degrees of transformational leadership are more likely to experience well-being.

The results of this study support the findings of other studies and suggest that favourable impacts on employee well-being are possible with a transformational style of leadership.
