This article argues that through autonomous motivation, empowered leadership will lead to good behaviors, reduced emotional tiredness, and decreased turnover intention, and that personality variables in subordinates will regulate these correlations. The effects of perceived general self-efficacy and proactive personality in individuals are also studied in this study, as well as any potential relationships between empowering leadership and the aforementioned outcomes. What effects does a leader's facilitation have on employees' motivation, extracurricular activities, and general well-being. To support the performance of effective organizations and prevent unfavorable organizational outcomes, managers and executives can balance their authority and empowerment behaviors. To do this, they can use the investigation of this relationship to help businesses understand both the benefits and drawbacks of empowering leadership. The self- determination theory and social cognitive theory are both used in this study. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of both enabling and burdening empowering leadership on employee motivation, extra- role behaviors, and well-being while accounting for individual characteristics such as employee general self- efficacy and proactive personality. Empowering leadership is connected with a range of positive organizational outcomes as well as positive individual outcomes for employees. Empowering leadership may increase employees' autonomy and responsibility, which may reduce both the company's and the employee's productivity. Empowerment, in the opinion of Forrester (2000) and Spreitzer (1995, 1996), should enable workers to reach their full potential, increase their motivation, make them more adaptive and responsive to their surroundings, and lessen the bureaucratic barriers that prevent response. The benefits of empowerment are unfortunately not always felt, and the challenges appear to be more the product of implementation mistakes than design problems (Ford &Fottler, 1995).
