Why do employees speak up? Examining the roles of LMX, perceived risk and perceived leader power in predicting voice behavior

Journal of Managerial Psychology, 34(8), s. 560- 572. Doi: 10.1108/JMP-11-2018-0534 - Full text in research archive

The purpose of this paper is to understand better why employees voice. Drawing on social information processing theory and insights derived from the literature on power, the authors suggest that leader–member exchange (LMX) fosters voice by reducing the perceived risk of voicing. The authors further contend that high perceived leader power will strengthen this mediated relationship.
