The abuse of supervision in leadership member communication in the hotel industry has a significant impact on the development of the hotel industry and the work efficiency of employees. Especially in the Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay Area, an economically prosperous region with a developed hotel industry, the abuse of supervision is even more prominent. This study takes the hotel industry in the Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay Area as an example to explore the impact of abusive supervision on leadership member communication in the hotel industry. Firstly, the development of the Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay Area and the importance of the hotel industry were introduced. Then, the definition and role of supervision were elaborated, as well as the manifestations of abuse of supervision. Subsequently, the negative impact of abusive supervision on leader member communication was analysed, including threatening employee motivation and innovation ability, damaging trust and cooperative relationships, increasing work pressure and employee turnover rate, and limiting information flow and knowledge sharing. Finally, strategies were proposed to address and prevent abuse of supervision, including enhancing the literacy and abilities of leaders, establishing a good communication mechanism and atmosphere, and strengthening training and education.
