We examine how social status—the amount of respect and admiration conferred by others—is related to leader’s ratings of team member voice. In a field study using 375 West Point cadets nested in 60 squads, we find that that there are two countervailing pathways linking social status to leader voice ratings: a positive structural path via instrumental network centrality and a negative psychological path via perceived image risk. In addition, we show that these relationships are contingent upon a relational moderator, such that high-quality team interpersonal relationships weakened the positive indirect effect via instrumental network centrality but strengthened the negative indirect effect via image risk. Two post hoc experiments provided preliminary support for our arguments that perceived image risk causes people to develop and deliver their voice in a manner that is more acceptable to recipients and ruled out several alternative explanations. In contrast to its impact on leader’s ratings of voice, we found a different pattern of results for team member’s ratings of voice: notably, the indirect effect via image risk was positive, rather than negative. The results of our multi-level analyses shed new light on how, why, and when social status impacts leader ratings of voice. In doing so, we challenge assumptions about voice behavior and open avenues for future research.
