International Journal of Chinese Culture and Management (IJCCM), Vol. 1, No. 3, 2008

Abstract: Chinese leadership literature had documented that employees' compliance interacts with Chinese traditional leadership in determining employee's effectiveness. However, previous studies reported inconsistent findings on this interaction effect. The present study extended past research by illustrating that the interaction effect of Chinese traditional leadership and compliance is dependent on the employee's individual relationship orientation. The results show that Chinese traditional leadership × compliance × relationship orientation has a significant interaction in the prediction of employees' job performance. The theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
