Purpose The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between leader arrogance on subordinate outcomes of feedback seeking, morale, and burnout through its relationships with subordinate feedback environment perceptions. Additionally, perceived organizational support and subordinate feedback orientation are examined as moderators that influence the degree to which leader arrogance exerts its effects on these outcomes.

Mindfulness research activity is surging within organizational science. Emerging evidence across multiple fields suggests that mindfulness is fundamentally connected to many aspects of workplace functioning, but this knowledge base has not been systematically integrated to date. This review coalesces the burgeoning body of mindfulness scholarship into a framework to guide mainstream management research investigating a broad range of constructs. The framework identifies how mindfulness influences...

Sampling strategy has critical implications for the validity of a researcher’s conclusions. Despite this, sampling is frequently neglected in research methods textbooks, during the research design process, and in the reporting of our journals. The lack of guidance on this issue often leads reviewers and journal editors to rely on simple rules of thumb, myth, and tradition for judgments about sampling, which promotes the unnecessary and counterproductive characterization of sampling strategies as...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine how two motives for feedback-seeking behavior, the instrumental and image enhancement motives, impact the feedback-seeking process and supervisor ratings of task performance. Design/methodology/approach – Correlational data were collected from supervisor-subordinate dyads and analysed with path analysis. Findings – Results show that perceptions of a supportive supervisory feedback environment are associated with both higher instrumental and image...

Feedback is an essential part of communication, coaching, management, and human resource practices. Yet the essential elements that make feedback more effective often fail to go beyond the pages of academic journal articles and into the workplace where they could greatly improve communication and performance. This book is an easy-to-use resource that applies classic and current research findings to create actionable, evidence-based tactics that consulting psychologists, consultants, managers, an...

Literature on the feedback environment has purported that supportive environments fostered by supervisors lead to improvements in employee well-being and performance. However, little research has considered how the feedback environment affects workplace motivation or identified boundary conditions of the feedback environment to outcome relationship. The current study extends the literature by utilizing a predictive design to examine how the supervisor feedback environment affects dimensions of e...

This study used a cross-lagged panel design to examine the temporal relationship between management communication and perceived organizational support (POS), and its consequences for performance. We assessed management communication and POS 2 times, separated by a 3-year interval, in a social services organization (N = 236). Our findings suggest that management communication was positively associated with a temporal change in POS. In addition, we found that POS fully mediates the relationship be...

The literature suggests students gain important skills when directly involved with faculty in research. However, students at smaller institutions are often faced with limited research opportunities and faculty members are faced with limited participant-pools, funding, and space to perform research. Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (MTurk) may provide a solution to many of these problems. MTurk provides an online human participant-pool, along with tools to build experiments, and it allows data to be coll...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine employee perceptions of fairness and work morale as mediators of the relationship between leader reward behavior and employee behavior.Design/methodology/approach – A matrix of meta‐analytic estimates containing the focal variables (leader reward behavior, fairness, morale, and employee behavior) was constructed following a literature review of published studies. This matrix was then analyzed using structural equation modeling to test a series of...

When data are collected via anonymous Internet surveys, particularly under conditions of obligatory participation (such as with student samples), data quality can be a concern. However, little guidance exists in the published literature regarding techniques for detecting careless responses. Previously several potential approaches have been suggested for identifying careless respondents via indices computed from the data, yet almost no prior work has examined the relationships among these indicat...

Proactive burnout prevention refers to a set of proactive behaviors employees may engage in to prevent burnout. Findings of a previous exploratory qualitative study indicated that employees who had to deal with high demands engaged in specific proactive behaviors in the work, home, and personal domain in order to prevent burnout. To further examine proactive burnout prevention in longitudinal quantitative research and to be able to investigate its effectiveness, an inventory for assessing these ...

Feedback orientation is a multidimensional quasi-trait that involves seeing feedback as valuable, feeling accountable and capable to act on feedback, and being cognizant of feedback information in one’s social environment. Fostering and maintaining a positive feedback orientation is essential for employees to benefit from performance management processes, but relatively little research has explored this construct. In this chapter, we summarize existing findings concerning feedback orientation an...

A growing body of research has increasingly considered the feedback environment or the social context in which day-to-day, informal feedback exchanges occur. While researchers have brought attention to affective and attitudinal reactions as important criteria for traditional performance appraisals, the feedback literature has not considered specific reactions to the feedback environment. With this in mind, this chapter describes several studies examining employee reactions to the feedback enviro...
