Abstract

We proposed a series of leader behaviors, termed Ambassadorial Leader Behaviors, to facilitate team performance and tested them against 42 virtual teams (VT) that included 266 individuals. The results show organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) mediated the collective set and two individual behaviors, shared leadership and advocacy thus contributing significantly to the explained variance of team performance. The results provide an indication of important behaviors when leading VTs and underscore the importance of considering situational context in future VT studies.
