Abstract

This study develops a theoretical integrated model examining the role the co-occurrence of task and relationship conflict (CTRC) as a mediator in the relationship between diversity and group effectiveness. The model also examines transformational leadership (TFL) as a moderator in this relationship. Data were collected from 354 people in 56 workgroups from three private universities in the Middle East. Hierarchical regression results revealed that TFL moderated diversity’s direct effect on CTRC, as well as the indirect effect linking diversity, CTRC, and group effectiveness. Specifically, diversity had an inverted U-shaped relationship with CTRC in groups with low TFL, but a negative linear relationship in those with high TFL. Findings help expand understanding of how, and under what conditions, diversity influences group effectiveness.
