This study delves into the critical role of leadership in enhancing employee well-being through the cultivation of positive social capital within organizations. Through an in-depth analysis, we explore how leadership strategies influence the development of social connections, trust, and cooperation among employees, ultimately contributing to their overall well-being. Drawing from various theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence, this research sheds light on the mechanisms through which leadership can foster positive social capital and its implications for employee health, job satisfaction, and organizational performance. The findings underscore the importance of proactive leadership interventions aimed at nurturing a supportive and inclusive work environment conducive to employee well-being.
