Departing from the existing focus on intrinsic motivation, we theorized creative role identity as an underlying mechanism linking team-directed empowering leadership with individual creativity. We also theorized the power distance and conformity values of individuals as boundary conditions for the creative role identity mechanism. We collected data from 33 team leaders (supervisors) and 276 team members (subordinates). Our results indicate that team-directed empowering leadership had a positive relationship with creative role identity, which in turn had a positive relationship with individual creativity. The power distance and conformity of individuals moderated the relationship between team-directed empowering leadership and creative role identity and the indirect relationship that it had with individual creativity via creative role identity, such that the relationship was stronger at low levels of power distance and conformity.
