TRIPIANA, Jacoba  and  LLORENS, Susana. Fostering engaged employees: the role of leadership and self-efficacy. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.2, pp.636-644. ISSN 1695-2294.

This study examines the role of supporting leadership and self-efficacy in the development of work engagement. We evaluate the mediating role of self-efficacy between leadership and work engagement in a sample of 271 employees from a Public Administration (City Hall). Results from the Structural Equation Modeling Analysis reveal that self-efficacy mediates the relationship between leadership and work engagement. The perception of having supporting leaders relates significantly with employees' self-efficacy, which in turns, positively relates to work engagement.

Keywords : Leadership; self-efficacy; engagement; public administration.
