Abstract
This study extends regulatory fit theory by exploring boundary conditions

of the temporal fit/nonfit effect on subordinate creativity. We propose

that fit (nonfit) between subordinates regulatory focus and the temporal

distance of a leader-stipulated task enhances subordinate creativity under

task-enjoyment (performance-concern) conditions. Data supported the

nonfit hypothesis among promotion-focused subordinates: Subordinates

who were more promotion-focused showed greater creativity after recalling

a leader-stipulated, temporally near task when they concentrated on doing

well rather than on enjoying the task. Prevention-focused subordinates showed no such patterns for creativity. Implications for managing employee

creativity in the competitive, performance-pressured organizational and

business environment are discussed.
