The Leadership Development

Based on the Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) Theory of Leadership, whenever there is a team project, there is an in-group and an out-group. These two groups refer to the relationship between the leader and the employees. Employees in the in-group always have more responsibilities and often learn about events/updates earlier than the out-group.

Thinking about this, please do the following:

As an employee, explain two benefits and      two disadvantages of being part of the in-group and the out-group.

As an employee, how might you work your      way into the in-group?

As a leader, mention two characteristics      of employees in the in-group and two characteristics of employees in the      out-group.

  1. Explain why leaders divide employees      into an in-group and an out-group.
