Due to the high power distance culture, most Chinese employees have a wait-and-see attitude towards voice behavior. Managerial voice solicitation may be the key to solve this problem. Based on the communication element model, we analyze the structure of voice solicitation, and propose that there are different forms and contents of voice solicitation. Based on the theory of planned behavior, we further propose that managerial power distance, the perception of change climate and managerial self-efficacy will affect voice solicitation through the intention of voice solicitation. In addition, the perception of change climate and managerial self-efficacy will moderate the form and content of voice solicitation. In a word, we change our focus from employee voice behavior to managerial voice solicitation, which provides a new perspective for exploring the voice behavior in the context of Chinese culture.

Key words: voice solicitation, voice behavior, theory of planned behavior
