There was a highly significant correlation (r (1, 1005) = .77, p < .00) between supervisor leadership communication and employee performance. Supervisors perceived as effective leaders and communicators were associated with high performing employees. Likewise, low leadership and communication significantly correlated with low employee performance. Supervisors scores explained approximately 60% of the variance in perceived employee performance (Adjusted R 2 = .60,
p < .00).
What correlation, if any, exists between supervisor leadership/communication and employee performance during the financial crisis of 2008-2009?
