Abstract/Summary Leader-member exchange (LMX) is a theory of leadership that specifically focuses on the quality of the relationship between a manager and his/her subordinates. Previous research has shown the link between LMX quality and employee attitudes and behaviours at work. However, to the authors' knowledge, research is yet to specifically investigate the link between LMX quality and employee emotions. Also little understood are the social exchanges that lead to and maintain LMX quality. A field study was designed and conducted to investigate the link between LMX quality, the bases of the social exchanges between a manager and his/her subordinates (referred to as currencies of exchange in LMX theory, and employee emotions. The study showed that the quality of the LMX relationship was able to explain whether the emotional consequences for subordinates were positive or negative, and that these emotional consequences were dependent on the currencies of exchange.
