Article
Meeting science has advanced significantly in its short history. However, one-on-one (1:1) meetings have not been studied empirically as a focal topic despite making up nearly half of all workplace meetings. While some meeting science insights may apply to 1:1 meetings, others may not (or may function differently) due to conceptual, theoretical, an...
Article
Ethical leadership has attracted massive attention in the twenty-first century. Yet despite this vast literature, knowledge of ethical leadership suffers from two critical limitations: First, existing conceptualizations conflate ethical leader behaviors with followers' evaluations of leaders' characteristics, values, traits, and followers' cognitio...
Article
Meta-analyses are well known and widely implemented in almost every domain of research in management as well as the social, medical, and behavioral sciences. While this technique is useful for determining validity coefficients (i.e., effect sizes), meta-analyses are predicated on the assumption of independence of primary effect sizes, which might b...
Article
Despite a growing importance and understanding of emotions and affective processes in leadership, the specific role of positive and negative emotional tone in leader follower relationships, as perceived by both parties to the relationship, is less well understood. We draw upon the Emotions in Relationships Model (ERM) in adult relationship sciences...
Article
Leader–member exchange (LMX) has long been considered a relationship‐based, dyadic model of leader–follower interactions. Recent reviews of this literature have, however, documented a paucity of research focusing on relationship‐based antecedents and dyadic‐level outcomes. In this study, we draw upon the relationship investment model to consider th...
Article
Despite recognition that emotions are present and salient during a crisis, traditional views of crisis decision making, such as crisis decision theory and naturalistic decision making, emphasize mainly the role of cognitive processes. Several recent crises illustrate individuals face complex, dynamic, and significant situations requiring decisions...

In response to growing calls for such research, we develop and test a model of leader behaviors directed at managing followers' negative emotions. These leader interpersonal emotion management strategies (IEMS) are posited to affect followers' organizational citizenship behaviors performed within interpersonal relationships (OCBIs) and job satisfac...
Article
This introduction to the special issue on leadership and emotions provides an overview of the topic and articles included in this issue.We discuss the motivation behind this collection of theoretical and empirical articles, how they contribute to the goals of the issue and where we see this domain of leadership research heading in the future. One g...
Article
Despite the popularity of LMX models of leadership, this line of research has consistently been criticized for overlooking the dyadic level of analysis. In order to address these criticisms, we draw on seminal typologies of composition and compilation models to conceptualize dyadic LMX and dyadic dispersion LMX via two widely used LMX scales – the...
Article
Many of the constructs central to the teams literature rely on aggregating individual group member ratings to the team level (e.g., efficacy, potency, cohesion, and conflict). Such aggregation, however, requires evidence of agreement across individuals to justify whether a construct can be appropriately characterized as a team-level phenomenon. Mos...

Purpose – The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of adult attachment on perceptions of trustworthiness and trust in one’s supervisor. Specifically, we cast trustworthiness perceptions as the cognitive mechanisms by which attachment influence trust, which then influenced work outcomes. Design/methodology/approach – Data on attachment...
Article
Drawing upon cognitive appraisal theory and affective events theory, we develop and test a model of discrete emotions, coping, and performance that contains both within‐ and between‐person components. We argue that when employees feel angry, guilty, joyous, or proud at work, those with higher levels of ability‐based emotional intelligence will turn...
Article
We proposed that cognitive appraisals mediate the relationship between leader influence tactics and follower emotions in the context of organizational change. We also examined whether or not these mediated relationships were consistent at two different points in the organizational change process. Using structural equation modeling, we tested our me...
Article
Based on extensive research that views leadership as a multi-faceted phenomenon, we examined how the relationships between task-oriented and relationship-oriented leader behaviors and career derailment potential vary by observer perspective. We present findings using three different analytical techniques: random coefficient modeling (RCM), relative...
Article
Drawing on shared reality theory and social exchange processes in leader–member exchange (LMX), we posit that variability in LMX ratings at both the dyadic and group levels act as cross-level moderators of the routinely studied individual-level LMX–performance ratings association. Specifically, we introduce dyadic dispersion LMX as a key dyad-level...
Article
nterpersonal Emotion Management (IEM) strategies represent behaviours targeted at managing negative emotions in others. This paper describes the development and validation of the four-dimensional IEM strategies scale. Four studies were conducted to assess the psychometric properties of the scale, including content, discriminant, and criterion valid...
Article
This paper presents a selective, qualitative review of affect, emotions, and emotional competencies in leadership theory and research published in ten management and organizational psychology journals, book chapters and special issues of journals from 1990 to 2010. Three distinct themes emerged from this review: (1) leader affect, follower affect a...
Article
Although extensive work exists on multilevel theory building, testing and inference drawing in organizational research, work focusing on interpersonal relationships and the dyad as a level of analysis is scarcer compared to research focusing on individuals, groups/teams, and organizations. This scarcity is attributable to conceptual and methodologi...

Drawing from the extant literature on organizational justice and trust, this study examines the effects of justice perceptions on trustworthiness perceptions and interpersonal trust in authority figures. Results indicate differential effects of procedural, interpersonal and informational justice on the three components of perceived trustworthiness:...
Article
We discuss four challenges facing emotion scholarship in organizational behavior: (1) inconsistent definitions; (2) aggregation of discrete emotions into affective dimensions; (3) aggregation across time; and (4) failure to recognize the role of context. We discuss literature related to these challenges, and call for empirical research to address t...

Purpose This study examines the role of personality attributions in understanding the relationships between nonverbal cues and interview performance ratings. Design/methodology/approach A structured behavioral interview was developed for identifying management potential in a large, national company. Using a concurrent design to validate the intervi...

This article develops and tests a conceptual model of followers' perceptions of transformational leadership as an antecedent to their positive psychological capital—a higher-order construct that represents an individual's motivational propensity and perseverance toward goals. Positive psychological capital, in turn, has in-role performance and orga...
Article
Secure attachment is a healthy attachment style that enables individuals to work autonomously as well as with others when appropriate. Secure attachments are characterized by internal regulatory mechanisms that allow individuals to be flexible and constructive in their interpersonal relationships Our model incorporates hope, trust in one's supervis...

Drawing upon recent research in positive psychology, a research stream entitled Positive Organizational Behavior (POB) has recently received much attention. POB has been defined by Luthans (2002a, 2002b) as ‘the study and application of positively oriented human resource stre...

Article
In response to concerns about the morality of inspirational styles of leadership, this article incorporates current theory from the emotion and positive psychology literatures to present an alternative approach to the role of emotions in leadership. Rather than focusing on the detrimental effects of affective responses, this approach suggests that...
