Abstract
Passion among entrepreneurial teams can contribute to team performance; yet we still have little understanding of the determinants of team passion. Drawing from the literature on social emotions, we theorize and empirically examine the influence of compassion and self-compassion of team members on the shared team entrepreneurial passion (TEP). Using an original sample of 326 individuals from 107 venture teams, we provide novel evidence that, in addition to team passion diversity, compassion and self-compassion significantly relate to TEP. Specifically, we demonstrate that compassion and self-compassion contribute to polyfocal TEP, which is more beneficial for team outcomes than monofocal TEP.
