Theorizing the Effects of Leader’s Methods of Monitoring on Job Performance: The Mediating Role of Organizational Citizenship Behavior
Performance monitoring refers to the collection of information about the work. Employee reactions to monitoring
matter because organizations have a strong stake in maintaining both employee motivation and well-being.There are
different methods of monitoring by organization leaders including observation, informal discussion and formal meeting.
Each of these methods and the frequency of employee performance monitoring have different effects on employee job
performance. Organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) also interferes in this relationship since some methods of
monitoring decrease OCB and some of them increase OCB. This study is an attempt to theorize the effects of methods of
leadermonitoring on job performance considering the role of organizational citizenship behavior. Based on the developed
conceptual model, OCB has a mediating role between methods of monitoring by leader and employee job performance. The
proposed hypothesizedrelationships in this study can be a base for further research in this area.
