Abstract

The study examines the extent to which task and relations oriented leadership moderate the impact of task and relationship conflict on teamwork quality.

The main practical implication of the results is that in order to mitigate the negative effects of intra-group conflict on teamwork quality the leadership style should fit the type of disagreement (task versus relational) predominantly experienced by the teams.
