This chapter focuses on the nature and consequences of a passion for leadership. The construct of passion for leadership is presented, as is a model of its potential behavioral and psychological consequences. More specifically, drawing from the dualistic model of passion, the chapter explains how harmonious and obsessive passion for leadership may affect high-quality and poor-quality leadership behaviors, respectively. Furthermore, the chapter examines how the two types of passion may influence leaders’ well-being differently. To advance the conceptualization of a passion for leadership, an agenda for future research is provided and the applicability of this new construct for practitioners in the field is explained.

Keywords:   passion for leadership, transformational leadership, leader-member exchange, abusive supervision, supervisor overcontrol, leaders’ well-being
