ABSTRACT
The article discusses subordinate participation in decision making as it relates to satisfaction and motivation. The findings of a survey of employees at a large organization found that subordinate satisfaction is a function of their participation in decision-making and that subordinate satisfaction is a function of perceived supervisory credibility. If the supervisor is not perceived as credible, subordinateparticipation in decision making may be detrimental to the supervisor subordinate relationship.
