Abstract

Multinational teams are an organizational reality, but they present several challenges. Literature suggests that individuals with multicultural identities are more likely to show behaviors that aim at improving intercultural interactions in multinational teams, though scholars have yet to determine the precise nature of these behaviors. We address this research gap in a multimethod two-study design by identifying five team cultural gap bridging behaviors (CGB behaviors: facilitating, translating, integrating, mediating and empathetic comforting). In Study 1, we draw on one qualitative and two quantitative datasets to identify within team CGB behaviors and develop a measure of CGB behaviors. In Study 2, drawing from two-wave survey data, we investigate the indirect relationship between cultural identity plurality and CGB behaviors via cultural intelligence.
