Unpacking the Effects of Status on Creativity

This research investigates how status influences individual creativity and the underlying process. We also examine how the impact of status is moderated by status mobility. The findings provide theoretical insights into the role of status on boosting or hampering individual creativity and have managerial implications for companies’ innovation strategy.
