The Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) Theory encourages leaders to be respectful to subordinates and to build relationships with all subordinates for a fair and equitable working environment. Transformational Leadership encourages leaders to be aware of their own behavior in their relationships with subordinates. So, together, these theories might make a big impact on how a leader and the leader’s subordinates unite as a team to create a healthy working environment.
