The role of effective leadership performance in constructing an engaging institutional environment for communication professionals: Evidence from a global study

Paper accepted to present at the Organizational Communication Division at the 69th annual International Communication in Washington, D.C., May 24-28, 2019.

Abstract: Communication leaders can strategically use organizational resources to co-define functions (the constructionist approaches in leadership) and to establish interpersonal alliances within and beyond communication units (the relational approaches in leadership). In the present study, we incorporated these theoretical lenses to evaluate how communication leaders’ performance helps build a positive communication structure and culture in the organization, which further influences communication professionals, the team members, at various levels. More importantly, we looked into the interdependent relationships among work engagement, trust in the workplace, and job satisfaction from a global perspective. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
