Dobbins, Gregory H.; Russell, Jeanne M.
Personnel Psychology, v39 n4 p759-77 Win 1986
Investigated braising effects of subordinate likeableness on leaders' attributions for subordinate poor performance and corrective actions toward subordinates in laboratory study of 96 undergraduates and field study of 98 organization leaders. Both groups made similar attributions for poor performance of liked and disliked subordinates, but were more inclined to punish a disliked subordinate than a liked subordinate. (Author/NB)
