Leadership and productivity: An examination of a leader -member exchange model

by Walters, Marlon M., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 104 pages; 3249897

Abstract:

This research paper will examine the relationship between leaders and employees, and the effects of this relationship on employee productivity. While it is a generally accepted principle to treat others the way you want to be treated, this is not always the case between leader and employee. Some leaders take the time to learn about employees and identify their motivating factor, while others implement their personal leadership style and set out to make others conform. Until an employee is able to interact with a leader and have a successful Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) to influence productive performance, the organization will not reach its maximum potential.
