Cass Shum (Hospitality) and her coauthors' paper "Breaking the cycle: The effects of role model performance and ideal leadership self-concepts on abusive supervision spillover" was published in Journal of Applied Psychology. The paper investigates factors that can break the trickle-down effect of abusive supervision. We propose and test that new leaders will model abusive supervisory behaviors when abusive superiors are perceived to be competent, based on the performance of their teams; and new leaders’ ideal leadership self-concepts are high on tyranny or low on sensitivity.
