A Two-Way Approach of Congruent Behavior between Leaders and Followers in the New

Rasa Pauliene


Current New Leadership theory is far different from early leadership theories, whereas the theoretical development in this area
has undergone many refinements (Stogdill, 1974; Bennis, Nanus, 1985; Bass, 1990; Senge 1990; Kirkpatrick, Locke, 1996;
etc.). Firstly, the task of the article is to present analysis using a domains perspective to develop a new approach to leadership
paradigm, and the New Leadership is to be discussed within the systematics as a relationship-based approach. Secondly, the
purpose of this paper is to examine influence of leader behaviors on follower attitudes and intentions toward providing voluntary
upward reciprocity principle. The paper's findings suggest whether leaders who emphasize exchange relationships with
followers may increase followers' propensity to provide voluntary upward reciprocity principle. Leaders may utilize these
findings to alter behaviors in order to promote greater amounts of voluntary reciprocity principle with followers. Potentially
beneficial behaviors are addressed in the paper.
