Abstract

This study examined the influence of self-leadership behaviors on supervisor performance rating, objective work performance and job satisfaction. In addition to the main effects, we also hypothesized that job autonomy would strengthen the relationship between self- leadership behaviors and work outcomes. Using a sample of 412 supervisor-subordinate dyads collected in People's Republic of China and Hong Kong, we found that subordinates' self-leadership behaviors are positively related to supervisor performance rating, objective work performance and job satisfaction and that job autonomy moderated all three of these relationships. Implications of these findings for research and practice are discussed.
