Abstract

Leader-member exchange (LMX) and guanxi have been tested and linked to various antecedents and outcome variables, but the possible link of treating LMX and guanxi as mediators between perceived leadership influence behaviors and attitudinal commitment has never been tested. The current study contributes to the literature by integrating a relational attribution model to our framework, and simultaneously investigating the culture effect in a sample of Chinese and Western respondents. The results demonstrate a mediating effect of both LMX and guanxi; the mediating effect of LMX between influence behaviors and organizational commitment is stronger than guanxi. The findings of the study also indicate no significant country differences, suggesting the theoretical framework is a universal model.
