Examining the relationship between the five factor model of personality and expatriate team effectiveness : the role of cross-cultural adjustment
MetadataShow full item record
The role of cross-cultural adjustment in the relationship between the five factor model of personality and expatriate team effectiveness was examined. Hierarchical regressions suggest that cross-cultural adjustment acts as a mediator in the relationship between emotional stability and all team outcomes except desire to terminate the assignment. Exploratory analyses showed that cross-cultural adjustment acted as a moderator between agreeableness, openness, and conscientiousness, and every team outcome except team-oriented behaviors and satisfaction. Implications and future research suggestions are discussed.
