Rice U study: Managers can boost creativity by ‘empowering leadership’ and earning employees’ trust

“Our results reveal an interesting phenomenon,” said Jing Zhou, the Houston Endowment Professor of Management at Rice’s Jones Graduate School of Business. “Empowering leadership may be especially effective at promoting creativity for those who have high levels of both uncertainty avoidance and trust in their supervisors. In addition, we also found that creative self-efficacy (the degree to which the employees themselves believed they are capable of being creative) was a psychological mechanism that explained the three-way interaction’s effect on creativity.”
