Leader Member Exchange Theory – that sounds pretty dry on

Leader Member Exchange Theory – that sounds pretty dry on the surface. But suddenly we are looking at leadership from the other side – the follower’s side of the lens. (And you thought the “In Crowd” was a slang term for young adults and teens all about being popular.) But think about it in the context of this chapter and a work team and leadership. Think about it in terms of the work groups and teams you belong or have belonged to. Can you describe a time when a team leader (doesn’t have to be the formal leader) helped you move from being part of the out group to the in group? Is this concept in any way related to the “glass ceiling” when it comes to opportunities for women and minorities?
