    Abstract

    This study investigated how challenge-hindrance stressors differentially influence employee innovative behaviors via psychological empowerment as well as the moderating role of controllability attributional style. The results of two field studies consistently showed that challenge stressors positively while hindrance stressors negatively influence employee innovative behaviors via psychological empowerment. Study 2 showed that hindrance stressors had a negative impact on employees’ psychological empowerment and innovative behaviors for those employees who had a low rather than high controllability attributional style.
