Communication Apprehension, Supervisor Communication Receptivity and Satisfaction with Superiors.
Daly, John A.; And Others
Considerable evidence indicates that a significant positive relationship exists between superior communication receptivity and subordinate satisfaction with supervision. This relationship may be affected by the subordinate's level of communication apprehension. This study hypothesized a main effect for participation permissiveness and an interaction between that permissiveness and communication apprehension. Dependent measures include supervisor and work satisfaction, supervisor competence, character, sociability, composure and extroversion, task and social attraction, power and quality. Findings supported the main effect hypothesis. No support was found for the interaction prediction. A post hoc explanation for the findings suggests a general negative evaluation of the high apprehensive supervisor. (Author)
