Abstract

In this study, the authors examined the relationships among transformational leadership, creative identity, and creativity from a multilevel perspective. They found that individual-level transformational leadership positively affected employees' individual creativity indirectly through individual creative identity. Group creative identity instead mediated the relationship between group-level transformational leadership and group creativity. In addition, group creative identity mediated the relationship between group-level transformational leadership and individual creative identity. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
