Research Briefing

Keywords: leadership, leadership development, leadership styles, relational energy, organisational psychology, productivity

An unusual and interesting area of research that is becoming more prominent is that around ‘relational energy’. Relational energy refers to the positive feeling and sense of increased resourcefulness experienced as a direct result of an interaction with someone else. Some people seem to increase our energy, positivity and sense of resourcefulness, whilst others either have no impact or drain our energy.

This research briefing examines a study which looked at the impact of different leadership styles on relational energy and is useful to leadership and anyone involved in leadership development and coaching.
