Abstract

Despite recent rebirth of interest in the role of emotions in the workplace, very few
theories and studies have explored group affect. Additionally, although charismatic
leadership is associated with the evocation of follower emotions, there has been
limited theory and research on the influence of these leadership styles on follower
emotions in general, and group emotions in particular. 357 players from 45 basketball
teams participated in this study. Using data from different sources, we tested the
relationships between charismatic leadership, group affect, and subsequent team
performance. The results of this longitudinal field study indicated that charismatic
leadership was positively related to group positive emotions and negatively related to
group negative emotions. Group positive and negative emotions mediated the
relationships between charismatic leadership and team performance.
