Abstract
The purpose of this study is to examine how leader’s humor styles influence employee creativity, and the moderating effects of trust in leader on the relationships between leader’s humor styles and employees’ creativity. The results using 316 valid leader-subordinates pairs (71 leaders and 316 subordinates) from five telecommunication companies in South Korea showed that leader’self-enhancing humor was positively associated with subordinates’ individual creativity, and leaders’ aggressive humor was negatively associated with subordinates’ individual creativity. In addition, trust in leader significantly moderated the relationship between self-enhancing humor and employee creativity. Specifically, the relationship between self-enhancing humor and employee creativity became stronger as trust in leader increased.
