While the theoretical conceptualisation of authentic leadership is relatively well advanced, empirical inquiry into the phenomenon is at a comparatively early stage of development. This exploratory study contributes to this effort by investigating the nature of the relationship between authentic leadership and two related concepts: the psychological capital (PsyCap) of the followers that are being led and the impact that the leader is perceived to have on the organisation’s fortunes and well-being (Leadership Impact). Drawing on data collected from a national authentic leadership survey conducted in New Zealand, the analysis found that the unmediated relationship between authentic leadership and PsyCap, was, as expected, positive and significant. However, when Leadership Impact was included as a mediator of Authentic Leadership’s effect on PsyCap, a significant negative path was discovered to exist directly between Authentic Leadership and PsyCap. This suggests that the positive relationship between Authentic Leadership and PsyCap is actually the net result of two simultaneous opposing relationships, a positive one mediated by Leadership Impact and a direct negative one. These results suggests that the organisational implications of authentic leadership are more complex than generally assumed and, therefore, worthy of further investigation.
