Abstract

The article focused on the negative role played by employee silence, as it is one of the symptoms that employees don’t want to give their hundred percent towards the productivity and performance of organizations. Furthermore, toxic leadership can even augment this silence behavior and thus it can be drastic for an organization. The study analyzed the role of courageous followership as ja moderating player in this framework. We collected the data from 214 respondents and then various tests were run to test the association. Analysis show that toxic leadership definitely augments the intensity of employee silence, however the role of courageous followership is moderating the effect positively. The study has theoretical, academic and practical implications for the professionals.
