Formatted abstract The primary purpose of this investigation was to test two hypotheses derived from the Vertical Dyad Linkage (VDL) model of leadership. The secondary purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate the methodological issues involved in using coded interview data as opposed to Likert type scales in questionnaires. Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected from a large manufacturing organisation. Results indicate that high quality dyads were characterised by positive emotional exchanges between the two members of an exchange relationship, whilst low quality dyads were characterised by neutral or negative emotional exchanges. The results suggested also that the applicability of the VDL model to lower levels of the organisation should not be overlooked. A problem encountered in Likert type scaled questionnaire measures was the restriction in the range of responses. Content coded interviews on the other hand, did not appear to have a range restriction problem. Implications of these findings are discussed.
