The present study was designed to test a structural equations model of supervisors’ social intelligence (SI), interpersonal justice (IJ), and creative performance (CP). Data on SI, IJ, and CP were collected with questionnaires from a collegiate sample of 351 dyads of employed undergraduate business students at a southern university and their colleagues who had the same supervisor. The questionnaires required an observer (subordinate A) to indicate to what extent their supervisor displayed SI and their perceptions of IJ and another observer (subordinate B) to estimate their supervisor’s CP. Data analyses with LISREL provided full support for the model which suggests that socially intelligent supervisors positively contribute to IJ which enhances their own CP. Implications for management, directions for future research, and limitations of the study are discussed.
