We develop and test a theoretical model of moderated mediation in which feedback-seeking behavior serves as an intervening mechanism that explains the association between creative self-efficacy and employee creativity. We also consider how regulatory focus influences the intervening role of feedback-seeking behavior in the creative self-efficacyemployee creativity relationship. To test our hypotheses, we conducted a Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) with 331 subordinate–supervisor dyads from northeast China. In support of our hypotheses, feedback-seeking behavior mediated the relation between creative self-efficacy and individual creativity, and this mediation effect was moderated by promotion focus. We discuss implications of the study and offer suggestions for future research.
Prior research has shown significant, but not consistently solid, relations between creative self-efficacy and employee creativity. In line with social cognitive theory’s description of highlighting self-regulation functions in social cognitive process, we find that feedback-seeking behavior determines the influence of creative self-efficacy on employee creativity and, furthermore, that promotion focus moderates the relation between creative self-efficacy and employee creativity via feedback-seeking behavior. The study testifies to the suitability of a proactive perspective missing in the study of creative self-efficacy and employee creativity and complements prior motivation research by considering regulatory focus as a boundary condition that affects individuals’ processing and behavior orientation and, thus, leads to differing individual behavior.
