|Abstract:||Purpose: Paradoxical leadership (PL) is an emerging perspective to understand how leaders help followers deal with paradoxical demands. Recently, the positive relationship between PL and follower performance was established. We build on and extend this research by (1) interpreting PL as sensegiving and (2) developing theory about mediation in the relationship between PL and adaptive and proactive performance. Design/methodology/approach: We develop a new measure for PL as sensegiving. We provide a test of our mediation model with data from two different sources and two measurement times in a German company. Findings: Multilevel mediation analysis (N = 154) supports our mediation model. Originality/value: We present sensegiving about paradox as a core element of PL, which informs the choice of change-readiness as mediator. We develop and validate a scale to measure PL in future research.|
