This study provides information about authentic leadership, psychological capital, and followership behaviours, as well as their relationship with each other in the South African context. A quantitative, cross-sectional survey was designed for implementation via a composite electronic questionnaire. Data were gathered from a purposive sample of managers (N = 647) in a South African national healthcare organisation. The conclusion was drawn that the followership instrument had serious psychometric shortcomings. Authentic leadership and follower psychological capital were found to be related, indicating that leaders had an impact on the development of their followers’ hope, optimism, resilience, and self-efficacy. Cultural differences and traditional ways of thinking in the South African context were found to influence the popularity and experience of authentic leadership.
