The purpose of this special issue is to publish empirical research to better understand (1) relationships between a leader’s behavior and well-being and the well-being of their followers, and (2) how to develop interventions to help leaders improve their own well-being and that of their followers in organizations.

We welcome studies of leaders at all levels of the organization from middle managers to strategic leaders such as CEOs and entrepreneurs.

We invite submissions of empirical papers that apply rigorous methodological standards (for example, longitudinal and diary study designs, use of multisource data; temporal multilevel designs).

We welcome the submission of intervention studies.

The submission process will consist of an initial proposal submission (2000 words, not including references).

Papers that focus on research design and methodological issues will be considered if these present a breakthrough or brand-new perspectives in research on leadership and health/well-being.
