Abstract

Authentic leadership as a contemporary leadership behaviour has generated more attention in this 21st century. Thus, this study investigated authentic leadership and organisational commitment in information technology industry in Nigeria focusing on Techmahindra Nigeria. The study employed survey research design as well as simple random sampling. Data were collected using questionnaires from 180 employees in Techmahindra Nigeria but 151copies of questionnaire were retrieved. The results from the regression analysis indicated that authentic leadership (self-awareness, internalised moral perspective, relational transparency and balanced processing) has a positive and significant effect on organisation commitment (affective, normative and continuance). The study recommended that organisations should organize training programmes for their leaders on how to exhibit the qualities of an authentic leader in the running of the organizations.
