Hambatan yang memisahkan karyawan dengan rekan kerja atau karyawan dengan atasannya memegang peranan penting dalam menjaga kelangsungan hidup suatu organisasi karena mempengaruhi kepuasan kerja karyawan dan kreativitas karyawan. Meskipun kepuasan kerja karyawan telah dipelajari secara ekstensif, peran intervensi kepuasan kerja karyawan dalam hubungan antara karakteristik manajemen dan kreativitas karyawan belum banyak diteliti. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk menganalisis hubungan antara kerendahan hati penyelia dan pengawasan yang kasar dan kreativitas karyawan yang dimediasi oleh kepuasan kerja karyawan. Penelitian ini dilakukan dengan menggunakan survei online yang disebar pada bulan Mei – Juni 2022 dimana 180 pegawai Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan yang berada di Jakarta dipilih dengan metode Purposive Sampling dan Structural Equation Model digunakan sebagai alat analisa inferensial. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa kerendahan hati penyelia berpengaruh positif terhadap kepuasan kerja karyawan. Kedua, pengawasan yang kasar berpengaruh negatif terhadap kepuasan kerja karyawan. Ketiga, kepuasan kerja karyawan berpengaruh positif terhadap kreativitas karyawan. Terakhir, kepuasan kerja karyawan memediasi hubungan antara kerendahan hati penyelia dan pengawasan yang kasar terhadap kreativitas karyawan.
