Abstract

Development of a comprehensive model of leadership requires depiction of three distinct levels of analysis: the leader, the followers, and the performance outcomes of this relationship. Prior studies have shown that most leadership theories can be incorporated in this model (Yukl, 1989, 2010; Hernandez, et al., 2011). Leadership is constructed through interaction, as “followers exist because of leaders and leaders exist because of followers” (Hogg, 2001, p. 185). In interaction, leaders elicit follower behaviors and depend on the cooperation of the followers, just as followers depend on the leader. Leaders and followers are closely intertwined and embedded in a common social system.
