Abstract

Modern work teams operate in environments where increasingly salient member differences lead to the emergence subgroups. Building on findings from the faultline literature, we propose that team members typically organize into three types of subgroups--cliques, coalitions, and cohorts, and that different leader orientations are mandated by each subgroup type.
