Abstract

Building on the social exchange theory and displaced aggression theory, we examined the link between exploitative leadership and subordinates’ task performance via knowledge hiding. In addition, we examined the moderating effect of subordinates’ negative reciprocity beliefs. We collected multi-source and two-wave field data (N = 318 managers and employee dyads) from Malaysian service firms. We found that exploitative leadership decreases subordinates’ task performance via knowledge hiding. Moreover, this mediated link is the strongest among the subordinates scoring high on negative reciprocity beliefs. Despite the acknowledgment that organizations should focus on knowledge management, so far little is known about what causes knowledge hiding. To bridge this important gap, this study proposed and tested a research model for knowledge hiding and thus contributed to knowledge management literature.

摘要
基于社会交换理论和替代性攻击理论,本研究探究了剥削型领导与下属任务绩效之间的关系,考察了知识隐藏的中介作用和消极互惠信念的调节作用。对两个时间点从马来西亚服务型企业收集的318组上下级配对数据的分析结果表明:剥削型领导能够通过激发下属的知识隐藏来降低下属的任务绩效;当下属的消极互惠信念较强时,上述间接效应更为显著。尽管组织应该重视知识管理,但到目前为止,学者们对知识隐藏的诱因知之甚少。为了弥补这一研究缺憾,本研究提出并检验了一个关于知识隐藏的研究模型,从而为知识管理领域的研究做出了贡献.
