Stay Close! Leader Distance, Transformational Leadership, Engagement, and Performance in Undergraduate Project Teams

Research on leadership and transformational leadership has largely focused on supervisor-employee dynamics, which are characterized by traditional hierarchical structures. However, project teams also appear conducive to transformational leadership. The aims of this study are to show that (a) transformational leadership is related to project teams’ performance via the mechanism of work engagement and (b) leader distance moderates the relationship between transformational leadership and work engagement. The proposed moderated mediation model was tested using 180 students in an undergraduate management course and working in project teams.
