Rice U study: Managers can boost creativity by ‘empowering leadership’ and earning employees’ trust

In addition, we also found that creative self-efficacy (the degree to which the employees themselves believed they are capable of being creative) was a psychological mechanism that explained the three-way interaction’s effect on creativity.”
