Abstract

Recent and unprecedented levels of importance attached to subordinate organization citizenship behavior have enabled researchers to appreciate the issue from various perspectives including leadership styles and leader-member exchange relationships. This paper makes a contribution to the literature because few studies that encompass both of these theories are present in the literature. Under this framework and embedding the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation dimensions as further independent variables, the present paper yields some unexpected yet statistically significant findings using 156 sample units out of a total of 250 who received the questionnaires. The conclusions drawn from regression analyses revealed the positive effect of transformational leadership style on followers. In particular, under this circumstance, employees do not show any extra role performance when there is assurance of their managers’ support. Further, a step wise regression analyses procedure excluded the Leader-Member Exchange Relation dimension from the model which further substantiated the positive correlation between motivational tools and transformational leadership style over subordinate organization citizenship behavior.
