The importance of authentic leadership in the current business terrain has been reiterated by both practitioners and scholars, however there is a renewed interest on authentic followership as a core component of the authentic leadership process and development. Insights into the role, followers play in the process need to be uncovered in future studies, particularly empirical insights in order to understand the formation process of authentic relationships between the leaders and followers. This study will examine authentic leadership behaviours through the lens of followers in order to excerpt common ideas peculiar to the developing economy context. The context has been selected based on the dearth of research in cross cultural contexts and a gap in understanding of the followers’ process. This developmental paper provides an overview of the extant literature on authentic leadership. Findings from the in-depth review of extant literature will inform the development of an emerging conceptual framework and the subsequent stages of the research.
