Leadership behaviors are associated with organizational commitment for a unique niche of individuals - those who produce less work while in the workplace due to health-related problems, such as anxiety, stress, or depression. New research shows followers' perceptions of leaders' positive support and organizational justice (procedural and distributive) are significantly positively associated with followers' perceived organizational commitment. This quantitative correlational study explored the relationship between followers' perceptions of leadership support, leadership procedural justice, and leadership distributive justice, as well as their own perceptions of their emotional stability, and organizational commitment using the authentic leadership framework. Further research using multiple linear regression investigated if a combination of two or more variables, including leadership support, organizational justice (procedural and distributive) or emotional stability, could predict organizational commitment. The study found that followers' perceptions of their leadership support and followers' emotional stability could predict organizational commitment for individuals with low psychological capital (PsyCap).
