What Leadership Style Reduces Resistance?
Anneke Zwart, Student (University), Netherlands

The importance of employees being committed to change cannot be underestimated nowadays, since more and more organizations are operating in a dynamic environment, both internally and externally.
How should leaders behave so as to maximize commitment to change? What type of leadership meets the conditions for maximized commitment to change?

According to Kool and Van Dierendonck (2012), followers are most likely to be committed to change if leaders consider the feelings of the followers and are clear about the tasks to be done at the same time.
In other words, followers are most likely to be committed to change if leaders act in both a people and task oriented way.

Because servant leaders combine attention to the desires of their followers with being clear about the tasks of these followers, this leadership style is very effective.
