Abstract:This paper examines the influence of leadership styles on the acceptance of organizational change by employees. We introduce a conceptual framework to elaborate on the relationship between employees and the acceptance of organizational change. The focus on employees lies in their openness to experience, something that is considered to be related to the acceptance of change. This framework will be complemented with a set of propositions drawn from the literature. The propositions explain how an employee will be influenced by a certain leadership style in his/her acceptance of organizational change. These propositions have practical implications for grasping the way that psychology can be used in an organization when implementing a change. More specifically, leadership styles will be linked to the openness to experience of employees, and propositions are formed to predict how individuals are influenced by the leadership styles when it comes to acceptance of organizational change.
