Despite increased academic attention on the construct of authentic leadership, the repair process remains neglected across extant literature. There is an evident dearth of empirical research in this area, and this study seeks to address the gap by exploring the nature of leadership repair. Consequently, it examines authentic leadership repair within a developing economy context. It adopts a qualitative approach using semi-structured interviews to capture the perspectives of 18 respondents within the Oil and Gas Industry. The paper expands on the leadership repair propositions provided in the qualitative enquiry to offer a model of authentic leadership repair. The results show that authentic leadership occur across three distinct phases; conversion, redemption and validation encapsulated in an undefined period.
