LEADERSHIP, GROUP AFFECTIVE STATES, AND PERFORMANCE IN BASKETBALL TEAMS: A LONGITUDINAL FIELD STUDY Dr. Yair Berson Faculty of Education, University of Haifa 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.
