Abstract

Researches have documented the impact of dyadic relationships on individual behavior in work-group. Evidently, however, little research has been pursued towards understanding the direct effects of dyadic relationships and team oriented commitment constructs at multiple levels. The purpose of this paper is to establish and interpret the appropriate level of analysis based on the correlation between leader-member exchange quality and team-oriented commitment in a Malaysian organization setting. A survey from a Malaysian organization (n = 201) is analyzed on the relationship between dyadic relationships quality and team-orientated commitment using within and between analysis (WABA). Our analysis indicates that the individual dyad relationships correlate with team-oriented commitment at the group level. Therefore, supervisor-subordinate relationships quality influence overall team-oriented commitment in a work group. The results implied that the worker’s ability to communicate mutually about relationships (LMX quality) with their immediate supervisor implicates both personal fit and work group functioning. The results extend our understanding of dyadic relationships and team-oriented commitment by identifying the specific form levels of analysis in a Malaysian organization setting.
