Based on the theory of emotional contagion and similar attraction paradigm, this research explored the psychological mechanism of coaching leadership promoting employee voice behavior. The results showed that subordinate psychological capital mediated the relationship between coaching leadership and employee voice behavior. Moreover, supervisor employee dyadic tenure significantly moderated the positive relationships between coaching leadership and voice behavior. Research findings enrich theory and practice of coaching leadership.
