Leadership research and organizational learning research seem to be still poorly linked. In order to contribute to this intersection, Dr. Julian Decius, together with a research team around Dr. Muhammed Qamar Zia from the University of Karachi (Pakistan), investigated the question of what role perceived transformational leadership plays in employees' informal workplace learning. The corresponding study was published in the Leadership & Organization Development Journal (IF = 3.242). The results show that transformational leadership particularly strengthens informal learning when employees exhibit high self-efficacy. Moreover, informal learning plays a mediating role between transformational leadership and job involvement. Details are available here.
