This study analyzes the influence of the four components of authentic leadership on employees' OCB and job performance to suggest the implications behind the developing of authentic leadership. A survey was conducted on employees of various business areas in Korea, and 448 responses were used in statistical analysis. The results are as follow: First, self-awareness has not shown significantly effective on organizational citizenship behavior and job performance. Second, internalized moral perspective has shown significantly effective toward organizational citizenship behavior and job performance. Third, relational transparency has shown significantly effective for organizational citizenship behavior, but not effective for job performance. Forth, balanced processing of information has not shown significantly effective on organizational citizenship behavior and job performance. This paper makes significant contribution by considering the supervisor's relational transparency and internalized moral perspective, because these authentic leadership dimensions improve employees' OCB and job performance.
