Leader Interpersonal Emotion Regulation and Follower Performance

Autor: Héctor Madrid, Cristián A. Vásquez, Karen Niven

Interpersonal emotion regulation (IER) refers to the actions of influencing other people’s feelings. Drawing on this construct and emotions-as-social-information theory, we argue that leader IER to improve or worsen followers’ feelings would be related to followers affect and thereby to their performance.

Results of a multisource survey study supported a mediation model in which leaders’ attempts to improve their followers’ feelings enhancing followers’ task performance via the followers’ experience of positive affect. In contrast, leaders’ use of affect-worsening actions was associated with the experience of followers’ negative affect, but not related to task performance. These findings contribute by expanding knowledge on the affective underpinnings of the leader-follower relationship and informing the development of leadership interventions aimed to foster employee performance.
