Abstract: Synthesizing the literature on voice, creativity, and supervisor listening, our research built and tested a theoretical model linking voice opportunity with creative performance, moderated by supervisor listening. Using multisource, multiwave survey data from 347 employees and 91 supervisors in a large company in China, we found that when supervisors were attentive and listened to their subordinates, voice opportunity was positively related with creative process engagement, which in turn resulted in creative performance. Exploring the link between voice opportunity and creative performance with supervisor listening as a boundary condition of the relationship, our study contributes to the successful transition of voice inputs into creative outcomes.
