Abstract

This study investigates the relationship between responsible leadership and work engagement using learning organization as a mediator. A quantitative approach was used in the present study. Data were collected from 302 participants, using evidence from the sports event industry in Japan. The results revealed responsible leadership positively affects learning organization and work engagement. The results also suggest that learning organization partially mediates the relationship between responsible leadership and work engagement. A qualitative approach is needed to more fully understand how/why responsible leadership development affects employee work engagement and the role of learning organization. Responsible leadership development has become essential for creating sustainable positive impacts in the sports event industry.
