This study included job autonomy and task dependence into the category of job characteristic factors, and expected to find out boundary conditions of leader creativity expectations affecting employee creativity. By sending questionnaires to 35 teams, 402 subordinates’ matching data were obtained and empirically analyzed. The results show that leader creativity expectations has a significant positive impact on employee creativity, and intrinsic motivation plays a significant mediating role in the relationship between them. Job autonomy positively moderates the relationship between leader creativity expectations and intrinsic motivation, and then enhances the indirect effect of leader creativity expectations on employee creativity through intrinsic motivation. Task dependence negatively moderates the relationship between leader creativity expectations and intrinsic motivation, and weakenes the indirect effect of leader creativity expectations through intrinsic motivation. The study enriches the relevant research framework and has practical significance for management practice.
Key words: Leader creativity expectations / Employee creativity / Job autonomy / Task dependency
