Abstract:Team leaders should optimize the leadership behaviour they perform within team meetings in such a way that it maximizes performance. This research examines the relationship between three effective leadership behaviours and three performance outcomes taking into account the mediating effect of meeting effectiveness. The effective leadership behaviours are ‘structuring the conversation’, ‘informing’, and ‘challenging others professionally’. The performance outcomes are the team performance, individual performance, and job satisfaction. By using quantitative data analyses, the correlations and regressions are determined between the leadership behaviours, meeting effectiveness, and performance outcomes. A mediator analysis is applied to test the significance of the mediating role of meeting effectiveness. From the data analyses it is concluded that ‘structuring the conversation’ negatively relates to team performance, rated by team members, with a significant mediating effect of the meeting effectiveness. ‘Structuring the conversation’ is indirectly related to the other performance outcomes. According to the data analyses, ‘informing’ does not significantly influence the meeting effectiveness nor the performance outcomes. ‘Challenging other professionally’ is negatively related to the meeting effectiveness, but is slightly positively related to the team performance and job satisfaction. Further the meeting effectiveness is a positive predictor of the team performance, individual performance, and job satisfaction.
