Abstract

Data obtained from 276 subordinate-supervisor dyads were used to test an integrated model of the processes linking perceptions of politics and creative performance. Results of moderated mediation analysis revealed that: (i) the negative relationship between perceptions of politics and creative performance was indirect through intrinsic motivation; (ii) perceptions of politics moderated the intrinsic motivation-creative performance relationship such that the relationship was observed among low but not high intrinsically motivated individuals; and (iii) the indirect and negative influence of perceptions of politics on creative performance through intrinsic motivation was stronger when perceptions of politics were moderate to high but not when low.
