Summary In this study, we examined the relations of subordinate political skill with supervisor’s dependence on thesubordinate and supervisor reward recommendation, as well as mediating (interaction frequency withsupervisor) and moderating (supervisor political behavior) variables of these relations. Our theoreticalmodel was tested using data collected from employees in a company that specialized in constructionmanagement. Analyses of multisource and lagged data from 53 construction management team supervisorsand 296 subordinates indicated that subordinate political skill was positively related to supervisorreward recommendation via subordinate’s interaction frequency with supervisor. Although interactionfrequency with a supervisor was also positively related to the supervisor’s dependence on the subordinate,the indirect effect of subordinate political skill on dependence was not significant. Further, both therelationship between subordinate political skill and interaction frequency with a supervisor and theindirect relationships between subordinate political skill and supervisor reward recommendation werestronger when supervisors exhibited more political behavior.
