managers lack internal serenity: Interactive effect between perceived
organizational status and self-esteem on managers' trust in subordinates
and procedural justice�
Due to limited space, we strongly encourage you to reserve your place in advance. The registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please contact Irene Zhang at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and job title (faculty or doctoral student, department, and university) to register for the seminar by Sunday, July 10, 2011.
One field study and one scenario study were conducted to examine the interactive effect between managers' own perceived organizational status and self-esteem on their trust in subordinates and procedural justice toward them. I predicted that when managers experienced incongruence between organizational status and self-esteem relative to when they experienced congruence between the two, they would be more likely to experience anger (when low status/high self-esteem) or insecurity (when high status/low self-esteem), which would then lead to lower trust in subordinates and lower procedural justice toward them. Moreover, I hypothesized that trust in subordinates would play a mediating role for the organizational status x self-esteem interaction effect and procedural justice. Converging findings from both studies confirm these predications. Implications to the literactions of status, trust, and organizational justice are discussed.
