Abstract

Virtuous leaders and organizations influence subordinate behavior, specifically citizenship and counterproductive work behaviors, which ultimately drive the organization. Because effectiveness is vital in the military, it is important to understand the factors supporting optimal conditions for effective outcomes. Leader and organizational integrity are two forms of promise keeping influencing productive and counterproductive behavior. We analyzed the effect of leader behavioral integrity and unit psychological contract support on extra-role behaviors, finding differential effects for type of integrity. These results are discussed in terms of impact with theoretical and practical implications.
