Abstract

Drawing on path goal theory of leadership, the paper proposes that team temporal leadership can assist teams to reduce conflict situations and avoid further incidents over time. It is argued that the effects of task and relationship conflicts on team performance are moderated by team temporal leadership. A two-wave multi-source survey was conducted, using a sample of 196 leaders and 873 subordinates from manufacturing companies in Sri Lanka. The results revealed the moderating effects of team temporal leadership between task and relationship conflicts and team performance. It extends the past research on path goal theory indicating that the intensity of task conflict among members corresponds to the extent of interaction between them. The paper also outlines how low levels of conflict situations and depressing feedback from the managers have a detrimental effect on the subordinates which gradually become more negative towards the organisation, providing new insights to the managerial implications.
