This thesis aimed to determine the nature of the relationships between positive components of the Constructive-Experiential Leadership Model (CELM): Top-level Rational thinking and the constructive components of the experiential system, middle-level transformational leadership and third-level proactive influencing tactics employed by transformational leaders in an organisational setting. Examination of self-report leadership ratings in relation to third-party ratings, found leaders and worker ratings only correlate in desirable scales of leadership, but not scales of contingent or non-leadership. Examination of the relationships between CELM informational processing systems and transformational leadership, found partial support for the self-reported correlations by third-party reports. Finally, examination of the relationship between transformational leadership and influencing tactics, found Worker-rated data convincingly supported transformational leaders’ use of proactive influencing tactics. Evidence and suggestions for the CELM is discussed, limitations and considerations are addressed and recommendations for future research are presented. Overall, these findings support the positive CELM components and relationships between them.
