The study examines the impact of
authentic leader’s personality on
employee voice behavior through a quantitative study.
The results, from a sample of 200 subordinate–supervisor
dyads from a healthcare organization in Pakistan,
provide evidence of a positive relationship for leader
authentic personality with direct reports’ ratings of the
leaders’ authentic leadership. In addition, authentic
leadership was found to influence subordinates’ voice
behavior, as rated by subordinates’ immediate
supervisors; notably, this relationship was partially
mediated by the subordinates’ perceptions of OBSE.
Furthermore, leader authentic personality was indirectly
related to subordinates’ voice behaviour through the
mediating influence of authentic leadership and, in turn,
subordinates’ perceptions of Organization-based selfesteem. The findings of this study will make management
understand the linkage of an authentic leader’s
personality and employee voice behavior.
