Abstract

Building on Banks et al.’s (2018) grouping of authentic, servant, ethical, and charismatic leadership as values-based or moral leadership approaches, this study explores the relationship of values-based leadership to communal outcomes via fairness-related organizational climates. I utilize social exchange theory to explain the reciprocal and rational relationships between leadership, climate, and outcomes. Additionally, I utilize congruence theory to explore the benefits of alignment between certain values-based leadership approaches and particular fairness-related climates. Specifically, I suggest that authentic and ethical leadership align more closely with distributive and procedural justice climate, while servant and charismatic leadership align more closely with interactional justice climate and climate for inclusion.
