This review tracks the evolution of the theory of authentic leadership from its theoretical conception to more recent empirical research. We begin this chapter by providing an overview of the construct of authenticity and various conceptualizations in the research literature. We follow that by an examination of the theoretical advances that have characterized the field of authentic leadership by outlining the competing models of authentic leadership proposed in prior research literature. Next, we summarize the empirical validation studies of the theory of authentic leadership in an effort to highlight the development that the field of authentic leadership has undergone over the past 6 years. And, finally, we synthesize research findings and use them as a platform for offering suggestions to facilitate future leadership research and practice.
