The intercorrelations between Leader-Member Exchange and Individual Performance and Organizational Citizenship Behavior has been examined. The meta-analysis confirmed the correlation between those variables. The research revealed some new problems: that research tools used for LMX examination are not standardized, what can cause some differences in achieved results. Another problem that has been recognized was concerned with cause and effects relationship between LMX and individual performance. The identification of value exchanged in LMX has been recognized as further direction of the research.
