Background: The negative behaviors and abuse of supervisory tasks have negative consequences for employees and organizations. One of these consequences is reduction of readiness for change and innovation capability in organizations. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the role of readiness for change in the relationship between abusive supervision and innovative self-efficiency of employees of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in 2015.

Methods: This is a cross-sectional study using path analysis. In this study, 216 employees of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences were selected using random sampling. The research questionnaires included abusive supervision, readiness for change, and innovative self-efficiency of employees that their reliability and validity were approved. Data were analyzed using SPSS 22, Lisrel 8.50, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, and simple and multiple regressions.

Results: The results showed that abusive supervision had a significant negative effect on different aspects of readiness for change (P<0.0001). Emotional readiness for change had a significant positive effect on employees’ innovative self-efficiency (P<0.0001) and played a mediation role in the relationship between abusive supervision and employees’ innovative self-efficiency.

Conclusion: Since innovation leads to changes in the organization; therefore, employees should be prepared for these changes in advance. This preparation can be increased or decreased by the supervision methods used by the managers and their supervisory behaviors.

Keywords: Abusive Supervision, Innovative Self-efficiency, Readiness for Change
