ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to consider the implications of diversity management by investigating the influence of team diversity on team effectiveness and the mediating effects of shared leadership and team dynamic capability. Sixty four teams were selected from Korean companies and 292 team members participated in the questionnaire survey. Collected data was analyzed using SPSS 23. The results of the study shows that there were significant correlations among team diversity, shared leadership, team dynamic capability and team effectiveness, and that team diversity had a negative correlation with the rest of the variables. Second, team diversity had a negative influence both on shared leadership and team effectiveness, and did not have a valid influence on team dynamic capability. Shared leadership and team dynamic capability both had a positive influence on team effectiveness. Third, shared leadership partially mediated between team diversity and team effectiveness, and fully mediated team diversity and team dynamic capability. Lastly, shared leadership and team dynamic capability had double mediated effect between team diversity and team effectiveness. The findings of the study implies that in order to minimize the negative influence of team diversity, sharing visions, objectives, task method or norms with team members is crucial and providing diversity management systems and educational programs could be a starting point for developing organizational culture for managing team diversity. Facilitating shared leadership among team members will enhance team dynamic capability that could bring out the positive influence of team diversity and ultimately lead to company’s success.
