 Abstract
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between authentic leadership, organizational identification, job performance, and turnover intention. Specifically, the study investigated whether subordinates' organizational identification mediates the relationship between authentic leadership and subordinates' job performance and turnover intention. The study tested the mediated model using data from 299 employees working in a variety of organizations. The result revealed that authentic leadership was positively related to organizational identification and job performance but was negatively related to turnover intention. Further, organizational identification partially mediated the effects of authentic leadership on job performance and turnover intention. Theoretical and practical implications and limitations of the study were discussed.
