Abstract:Teamwork is being valued more than ever, especially since the benefits have started to be recognized. Although the relationship between individual resilience and innovative work behavior has received more attention in the literature, this relationship has been understudied at the team level. The purpose of this study is to (1) find the impact of team resilience on the team innovative work behavior and (2) the moderating effect of leader-member exchange and appreciation learning climate on this relationship. Applying the person- environment fit theory, a data set with a sample of 301 Dutch employees was used to study these impacts. The findings suggest that team resilience positively influences team innovative work behavior. Besides, only the appreciation learning climate positively moderates the relationship between team resilience- adaptive capacity and team innovative work behavior. This indicates that an appreciation learning climate improves the team innovative work behavior when the team has the adaptive capacity which is one of the dimensions of team resilience. Results regarding leader-member exchange are insignificant and therefore the hypotheses, which predicted positive moderating effect, cannot be confirmed. Further researches were conducted based on the gender type and supervisory role of the respondents. The results suggest that the impact of team resilience on team innovative work behavior is significantly positive from the perspective of all respondents. However, from men’s perspective, this relationship is stronger than from women’s perspective. The women agree that providing an appreciation learning climate and having SLMX relationship with a resilient team would enhance their team innovative work behavior. Meanwhile, from men’s perspective, SLMX relationship weakens the team innovative work behavior of a resilient team. Non-supervisor respondents on the other hand convey that appreciation climate improves the team innovative work behavior of resilient teams. These findings provide some meaningful insights for the theoretical and practical world regarding the team resilience and team innovative work behavior.
