Employee silence is increasingly prevalent within modern organizations and has been considered a significant issue linking to a number of important organizational outcomes, hence attracting academic interest. In this study, we developed and tested a model of leader’s destructive personality, trust in leader, and employee silence with a sample of 205 supervisor–subordinate dyads. We found that (a) leader’s destructive personality was positively related to employee silence, and (b) trust in leader mediated the relationship between leader’s destructive personality and employee silence. Implications of these results for future research and practice are discussed.
