Where have the mediating variables in leadership-performance research gone?
The literature suggests that variables such as using a vision, organizational climate, and trust between leader and followers may mediate the relationship between leadership and organizational performance. Yet, existing research tends to ignore these potentially important variables. This paper addresses this gap, discusses the overlooked variables, and suggests directions for future research via 14 research propositions.
