Although leadership has been extensively examined in the field of industrial-organizational psychology, management and business, until now there is scarce research focusing on the different emotional aspects of the leaders and the influence that they may have on their subordinates. This review explores emotions in healthcare workplaces-hospitals through the prism of emotional intelligence, emotional regulation, emotional labour, job satisfaction, burnout, and anxiety. The above emotional aspects of employees are presented along with selected paradigms coming from the Greek and international modern healthcare management research. The chapter closes with future directions-research questions on leadership issues in the modern healthcare workplace.
“The development of any organization is deeply connected with the influences of its employees. By implementing new competencies in the workforce, both the employees and the business overall can thrive.
“The Handbook of Research on Human Factors in Contemporary Workforce Development is a pivotal source for the latest scholarly perspectives on social aspects and employee influences on modern business environments.
“Including a range of topics such as gender diversity, performance appraisal, and job satisfaction, this publication is an ideal reference for academics, professionals, students, and practitioners seeking content on optimizing development in contemporary organizations.”
