摘要:

本研究采用领导—下属配对问卷调查方法, 从认知观与关系观视角检验自我牺牲型领导影响下属任务绩效与组织公民行为的中介机制, 具体包括战略定向与领导认同的中介作用。结果表明, 自我牺牲型领导与下属的任务绩效与组织公民行为正向关系显著;战略定向在自我牺牲型领导与下属的任务绩效以及自我牺牲型领导与下属的组织公民行为中起着部分中介作用;领导认同在自我牺牲型领导与下属的任务绩效之间起着完全中介作用;而领导认同在自我牺牲型领导与下属的组织公民行为间起着部分中介作用。

Abstract:

Self-sacrificial leaders are willing to abandon or postpone personal interests in order to achieve organizational or group goals. They act as role models and motivate the followers to engage in similar behaviors. The mechanism through which self-sacrificial leadership influences followers’ behavior, however, is still unclear. The current paper explores potential mediators between self-sacrificial leadership and subordinates’ work performance from cognitive and relational perspectives, specifically by examining strategic orientation and supervisor identification. The research highlights psychological effects of self-sacrificial leadership on subordinates’ work performance. Data were collected from 54 leaders and 224 subordinates. The leaders evaluated their subordinates’ work performance and their organizational citizenship behavior. The subordinates rated their leaders in terms of self-sacrificial leadership, and reported their own strategic orientation and identification with the leader. The results indicated that self-sacrificial leadership was positively related to subordinates’ task performance and organizational citizenship behavior. Strategic orientation partially mediated the relationship between self-sacrificial leadership and subordinates’ task performance, and the relationship between self-sacrificial leadership and organizational citizenship behavior. supervisor identification fully mediated the relationship between self-sacrificial leadership and subordinates’ task performance. In addition, identification with the leader partially mediated the relationship between self-sacrificial leadership and subordinates’ organizational citizenship behavior. In conclusion, the present research, with a cross-level design, examined the mechanism through which self-sacrificial leadership influences subordinates’ work performance. The research expands our understanding of the psychological mechanisms between self-sacrificial leadership and followers’ behavior. It has significant implications for managerial practice.
