Abstract

Integrating leadership theories, creativity theories, and the literature of team learning and team creative efficacy, we built and tested a conceptual model linking empowering leadership with team creativity by simultaneously including the team process and the emergent state concepts. Using longitudinal data from 102 R & D teams across three large IT companies in China, we found that empowering leadership positively influenced team creativity via team learning behavior and team creative efficacy. Moreover, moderated path analysis indicated that team task complexity strengthened empowering leadership's direct effect on team learning behavior and team creative efficacy and indirect effect on team creativity. Theoretical and managerial implications of these results are discussed.
