Abstract
This
study investigates the effects of learning orientation and global
mindset on virtual team member’s willingness to cooperate. It also
explores the mediating role of self-efficacy in these relationships. To
test the hypothesized relationships, the study used a sample of 224
employees from five global companies in South Korea. The results show
that while global mindset is directly and positively related to virtual
team members’ willingness to cooperate, learning orientation is not.
Self-efficacy serves as a mediator in these relationships. The study
concludes with a discussion of the theoretical contributions and
managerial implications for improving virtual team members’ cooperative
behavior.
