LMX theory argues that, because of time pressures, leaders establish a special relationship with a small group of their followers. o These individuals make up the ingroup — they are trusted, get a disproportionate amount of the leader’s attention, and are more likely to receive special privileges . Research to test LMX theory has been generally supportive, with substantive evidence that leaders do differentiate among followers; these disparities are far from random; and followers with ingroup status will have higher performance ratings, engage in more helping or “citizenship” behaviors at work, and report greater satisfaction with their superior.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
