Abstract

The central problem this study seeks to solve pertains to the inability of college graduates to engage effectively in teamwork. To solve this problem, we explored the antecedents and outcome of teamwork. We hypothesized that the effect of shared transformational leadership on team effectiveness will be mediated by teamwork quality. The hypothesis was supported. Findings suggest that shared transformational leadership improves team effectiveness by improving the quality of teamwork in student project teams. The study offers insights into the reason why many college students (and graduates) may struggle to engage effectively in teamwork, which has implications for leadership educators.
