The role of wisdom leadership in increasing job performance: Evidence from the Egyptian tourism sector

Elbaz, A. M., & Haddoud, M. Y. (2017). The role of wisdom leadership in increasing job performance: Evidence from the Egyptian tourism sector. Tourism Management, 63, 66-76.

Abstract: The paper aims to explore the intervening role of wisdom leadership in the link between leadership styles and employees' team performance, in the context of travel agents. Drawing on the leadership theory and the strategic leadership model, we develop an integrative model exploring the relationships between four distinct leadership styles and their influence on employees' satisfaction and team performance, through the mediating role of wise leadership. Using data collected from 505 travel agents operating in Egypt, we show that not all leadership styles have a positive influence on employees’ satisfaction. We also show that a positive influence takes place through the development of wisdom leadership. Our findings hold important implications for both the research community and travel agents.
