主 题：“As if One Boss wasn’t Enough!”:An Investigation of LMX in a Dual Leadership Context”
主讲人：孙嘉卿(Ph.D.candidate at the University of Illinois of China)
Both researchers and practitioners have observed a growing trend of dual leadership in contemporary organizations. Despite this trend, most leadership research has been conducted in the context in which every employee is working for only one leader. Drawing upon role theory, I investigated leader-member exchange (LMX), which captures the quality of the dyadic relationship between leader and follower, in the dual leadership context. In the present study, I focus on LMX misalignment, the difference of an employee’s relationships with two leaders, and investigated how LMX misalignment influences employees’ role ambiguity and role conflict and in turn their creative behaviors. To test the hypothesized model, I surveyed 137 social workers who are working for two leaders, and both leaders have the same position power and work interdependently. Integrating polynomial regression with multilevel analyses, I examined a moderated mediation model and found support for my hypothesized model.
