  • The impact of spiritual leadership and spiritual well-being on workforce agility: a study in the SMEs of the construction sector   Order a copy of this article
    by Taha-Yacine Naqach, Farid Chaouki 
    Abstract: This study investigates the profound impacts of spiritual leadership (SL) and spiritual well-being (SWB) on workforce agility (WFA), and explores the mediating role of SWB in the SL-WFA relationship. Employing a quantitative methodology with a structured survey of 143 participants, the study utilises partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) to test the conceptual framework. The results uncover a significant association between SL and SWB, showcasing their positive and noteworthy effects on WFA. This research highlights the compelling influence of both SL and SWB in enhancing WFA, particularly emphasising the mediating role of facets like calling and membership within SWB. These findings underscore the importance of amalgamating SL and SWB to foster WFA. Leaders should focus on optimising meaning, intrinsic motivation, and creating a purpose-driven environment. Effective communication, development opportunities, and a supportive culture can improve employees SWB and WFA.
