Adams, Carey H.; And Others
Journal of Applied Communication Research, v16 n2 p69-81 Fall 1988
Compares volunteers' and paid employees' attitudes toward their jobs and supervisors. Finds that volunteers are higher in intrinsic motivation and are more satisfied with their supervisors' decision-making. Suggests that supervisors of volunteers should use participative decision-making tactics and employ compliance-gaining behavior strategies that emphasize individual worth and work. (KEH)
