The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of regulatory focus on leaders’ receptivity on employee voice and to test whether the two types of employee voice, promotive and prohibitive, will act as moderator. A total of 273 currently employed leaders answered an online survey. The results showed that prevention focus, and not promotive voice predicts leader receptivity. Moderating effect was partially demonstrated but for promotion focus only. The findings support previous studies which showed that prevention-focused individuals who value safety are not automatically change-averse. Behaviors that may seem to conflict their natural behavioral tendency, such as being receptive, is possible so long as change is perceived as justified and reasonable.
