dc.description.abstract Purpose: The purpose of the study is to examine the ways in which leaders influence follower’s work-life management. Specifically, we propose that personal (positive affect), social (managerial support for work-family balance), and job (autonomy) resources mediate the relationships between transformational leadership and work-family conflict and enrichment. Design/methodology/approach: The sample included 411 managers in 37 hotel properties across the United States. Findings: The relationship between TL and WFC was mediated by autonomy, positive affect and managerial support for work-family balance, whereas the relationship between TL and WFE was mediated by managerial support for work-family balance and positive affect. Research limitations/implications: This study constructs a foundation for future integration of leadership and work and family literatures. It also provides preliminary support for work-family enrichment theory (Greenhaus and Powell, 2006) as well as the value of examining leadership through resource-based perspective. Practical implications: Interventions designed to enhance leadership may be effective not only in the workplace, but also for reducing work-family conflict and promoting enrichment. Originality/value: This study is the first to directly examine the effect of transformational leadership and both work-family conflict and enrichment. Further, it specifies mediating variables that underlie these relationships. en_US
