The development orientation of leaders (DOL) plays a key role in the revolutionary Chinese-style developmental leadership. The aim of this quantitative study is to explore the effect of congruence or incongruence between self- and other-rated DOL on the dyadic leader–member exchange (LMX) quality using polynomial regression analysis and the response surface methodology. We analyze 212 leader–subordinate pairs from Taiwan and China to further investigate the DOL and its relationship with empirical LMX quality from both leaders’ and subordinates’ perceptions.
The findings demonstrate that the scores of congruence between self- and other-rated DOL have a higher effect on LMX quality than does incongruence. When the self- and other-rated DOL are congruent, the higher DOL stimulates higher LMX quality. In incongruent circumstances, it is discovered that higher other-rated DOL with lower self-rated DOL results in greater LMX quality than higher self-rated DOL with lower other-rated DOL. Finally, the implications are discussed.
