In addition to the recent business field, the importance of leadership in universities is becoming an increasingly important issue. Purpose of our study is to recommend the significance of authentic leadership by analyzing the effect of leader 's authentic leadership on follower' s project work climate and project performance. As a result of the previous studies that authentic leadership among university students as a quasi-social worker mitigates the role of leader and the tension between the members in the team, this study tries to examine the moderation effect of work climate on the relationship between the follower's authentic leadership and project performance. Therefore, a survey was conducted for students enrolled in some universities. A total of 175 questionnaires were used for the structural equation using STATA 14.0. The results of this study is summarized in three points. Our finding is as follow. The authentic leadership of the leader has a positive influence on the follower' s authentic leadership while the followers' authentic leadership had a positive effect on the project performance.

최근의 경영 현장과 더불어 대학에서 리더의 진정성은 점차 중요한 이슈로 부각되고 있다. 리더가 리더십을 발휘하는데 있어서 구성원들은 리더의 진정성 정도에 따라 태도, 행동 및 성과에 많은 영향을 받는다. 이에 본 연구는 리더의 진성리더십이 조직분위기 및 프로젝트 성과에 어떠한 영향을 미치는지를 분석함으로써 진성리더십이 지니는 중요성을 시사하는데 목적이 있다. 따라서 대학에 재학중인 학생들을 대상으로 설문을 진행하였으며, 회수된 175부의 설문지가 분석에 사용되었다. 가설검증을 위한 통계분석은 STATA 14.0를 사용하여 구조방정식으로 검증하였다. 연구결과를 요약하면, 첫째, 리더의 진성리더십은 구성원의 진성리더십에 정(+)의 영향을 미쳤다. 둘째, 구성원의 진성리더십은 프로젝트 성과에 정(+)의 영향을 미쳤다. 셋째, 리더의 진성리더십과 구성원의 진성리더십 간의 관계에 있어서 조직분위기는 조절역할을 하였다. 넷째, 구성원의 진성리더십과 직무성과 간의 관계에 있어서 조직분위기는 조절역할을 하였다.
