Smartphone Use among Leaders: An Exploration into Smartphone Addiciton, Career Burnout, and Leader-member Relationship Development
by Shields, Landon, Ed.D., Trevecca Nazarene University, 2019, 95; 22617657
Abstract (Summary)

Smartphones have been integrated into daily life to the extent that users experience stress, fear, anxiety, and depression when separated or disconnected from their device. The relationship between smartphones, nomophobia, career burnout, and the quality of leader-member exchanges were assessed for this research study. Smartphone addiction was measured using the SAS-SV, nomophobia was measured using the NMP-Q, burnout was measured using the MBI-GS, and leader-member exchanges were measured using the LMX-7. A Pearson’s r correlation was used to assess each research question. The population of 401 leaders was checked for normality using skewness and kurtosis statistics.
