Abstract:This study was an exploratory research of the relationship between follower behaviors and their leader’s perception of the team’s human capital. The goal was to find out what follower behaviors will enhance their leader’s perception of the team’s human capital. The methods used entail: (1) video-coded monitoring follower (N=172) and leader (N=14) behaviors during regular staff meetings, and (2) leader ratings about the human capital of the group of followers. Despite that in this study no significant linkages were found between follower behaviors and leader’s perception of human capital, it was remarkable that not the studied behaviors (transformational and transactional), but the self-defending behavior showed an almost significant, negative link with the leader’s perception of human capital. Therefore this study concludes that more research on the little studied specific follower behaviors is urgently needed.
