We examined 166 Swedish academic and commercial researchers. Our goal was to investigate if the Cognitive support and the Knowledge resources leaders provide their followers are antecedents of leader-member exchange (LMX). Specifically, we investigated the antecedents in relation to the four sub-dimensions of LMX: Affect, Loyalty, Contribution and Professional respect. With one exception, both antecedents related to all sub-dimensions. We conclude that to enhance LMX quality, leaders should provide their followers with Cognitive support and Knowledge resources.
