Abstract: This conceptual paper proposes a model that explains how the style of leadership may engender followers’ motivation that guides their proactive behavior. Current literature demonstrates how leaders promote proactive behavior. However, followers’ motivation to behave proactively is less known. Understanding followers’ motivation is important because it determines how their behaviors are influenced by their leaders. We apply social cognitive theory and present a model that contrasts the impact of transformational leadership and management-by-exception on followers’ motivation for proactive behavior. We draw on empirical evidence to construct our model and of fer propositions. Lastly, we discuss theoretical contributions and future research.
