Katarzyna Czesak-Woytala , Katarzyna Piórkowska

Abstract

Despite a great number of studies on the leadership there is still a debate around the leadership definition, content, range, or counterfactual concepts. Therefore, there seems to be ample room to examine a leadership phenomenon, especially in terms of the leader-employee relationship realm. Consequently, the aim of the paper is to initially validate a research model developed as well as preliminarily verify the following hypotheses: (H1) The quality of the leader-employee relationship is negatively correlated with the employee's turnover intention; (H2) The employee’s assessment of the managerial skills has significant positive impact on the leader-employee relationship - this hypothesis means that leader-employee relationship is a mediator variable between the manager's skills and turnover intention; (H3) The quality of the leader-employee relationship is a significant predictor of the employee's turnover intention. The aim has been realized by conducting preliminary studies on the associations between a leader-employee relationship and employees’ turnover intention in a private financial sector in Poland (130 employees were surveyed). The multiple linear regression model with lmx7 as predicted variable was used to verify the assumptions made in the research model. The main findings are as follows: the quality of the manager-employee relationship can be a good predictor of the employee's turnover intention, the managerial technical skills are the strongest factor influencing the assessment of the leader-member relationship with regard to elements analyzed, and the quality of the leader-employee relationship is a significant predictor of the employee's turnover intention only for the group of specialists.
