I doubt this incredibly surprising
- High-BLM supervisors create low-quality relationships with their employees.
- In turn, employees perceive low-quality leader-member exchange relationships.
- Thus, employees reciprocate by withholding performance.
- When supervisor BLM is high and employee BLM is low, the damaging effects are strengthened.
- When both supervisor and employee BLM are high, the negative performance is still evident.
