The topic of abusive supervision has predominantly focused on the victim-centric perspective, far less research has paid attention to the perpetrator-centric perspective. Based on this, the purpose of this study is to extend the nomological network of abusive supervision by focusing on the perpetrator-centric perspective. In addition, leaders may perpetrate abusive supervision behaviors based on unintentional and strategic motives. Accordingly, drawing from self-regulation theory, we explore both the self-regulation depleted process of unintentional abusive supervision of leaders and the self-regulation enhanced process of strategic abusive supervision of leaders. We also investigate the moderating role of ideal leadership self-concept. Survey data was recruited from a sample of 52 supervisors (508 daily observations) across 10 consecutive working days from technology industry in Taiwan and was collected by using time-lagged experience sampling methodology. In addition, the hypotheses were examined by using hierarchical linear model and Monte Carlo method. We found that self-regulation depletion mediated the relationship between unintentional abusive supervision and work performance. Further, ideal leadership self-concept for sensitivity moderated the above mediated relationship. Work engagement mediated the relationship between strategic abusive supervision and work performance. Further, ideal leadership self-concept for tyranny moderated the above mediated relationship. This research can fill the gap of the abusive supervision literature and provide theoretical and managerial implications.
