How employee creativity is affected by authoritarian leadership

Research Briefing

Keywords: creativity, employee creativity, leadership, authoritarian leadership, LMX, leader-member exchange, power distance, team identification, innovation

A series of recent studies (2013, 2015 and 2017) found that one of the primary factors affecting employee creativity is the style of management and leadership they are under. Whilst much research effort has been placed on investigating the impact of empowering leadership styles, such as transformational leadership and servant leadership, less attention has been paid to the darker and more destructive side of leadership. In particular, authoritarian leadership and management styles.

A new study by a team of researchers from China and Singapore has had a look at this issue to try to discover how authoritarian leadership is creating the impact that it has on individuals’ creativity.
