Abstract

In a team environment, team members’ emotional regulation, voice, and team mindfulness may foster their flow experience. This research empirically explored the relationship among the three possible antecedents of flow: two individual-level antecedents, emotional regulation and voice; and a team-level antecedent, team mindfulness. Using temporal separated survey data from two points (two weeks apart) with a sample of 452 individuals, 112 work teams from a medium-sized enterprise, I found that team members who were good at regulating emotions and making suggestions more frequently reported higher team mindfulness and flow. Team mindfulness was also found to be positively correlated with flow.
