Chi, Shu-Cheng, Huang, Chiung-Yi, & Chang, Artemis (2010) Safety climate and relational conflict in the eyes of team members : examining the role of need for closure. Social Behavior and Personality: An International Journal, 38(1), pp. 103-114.
This study was aimed at examining the safety climate and relational conflict within teams at the individual level. A sample of 372 respondents, divided into 50 teams, was used to test our hypothesis. It was proposed - and discovered - that team members’ individual differences in need for closure mitigated the negative relationship between perceptions of team safety climate and team relational conflict. The implications of our findings and the study’s limitations are discussed.
