Drawing on social exchange theory, we examined the role of transformational leadership in promoting employees’ feedback seeking within the dynamics of leader–follower relationships. We used data from a survey of 205 supervisor–subordinate dyads in a high-technology communications company in China. Results showed that transformational leadership was positively related to employees’ feedback seeking. In addition, trust in leader mediated this relationship. Theoretical and practical implications for leadership are discussed.
