In this study, we investigate a model linking two facets of conscientiousness, duty and achievement-striving, to leadership emergence in the workplace. We propose distinct mediational paths such that high achievement is associated with competitiveness, whereas duty is associated with trust in the workplace. Helping behavior served as a third interpersonal mechanism predictive of leadership emergence. Role definition functioned as a moderator in the relationship between achievement-striving and help and as a mediator for duty and help. We tested our theory with a total of over 300 respondents including focal employees and their coworkers, and supervisors employed in a Fortune 500 organization. Implications are discussed.
