Abstract

ABSTRACT

This study explored whether organizational change had differential effects on perceptions of group leadership and group morale, depending on the source of the change activity. Data on work group leadership and morale was collected in two waves of an employee survey, and data on change activities were collected in the second wave of the survey. When leaders outside of a work group initiated change, employees reported more negative perceptions of their work group leader. However, when the work group leader initiated change, perceptions of that leader tended to be more positive. Finally, change activities initiated by group members did not influence perceptions of work group leadership, but were associated with improved work group morale.
