development. Specifically, managers will rate a more advanced team higher on levels of potency
compared to a less advanced team.
Finally, this study compares the relationship of potency perceptions of the team from the
team's perspective and from the manager's perspective. Teams in more advanced stages of
development are assumed to have more influence potential. Potency beliefs of the team act as a
gauge with which the team's internal attitudes can be externally perceived. These internal beliefs
are likely to radiate outward to influence the beliefs of external others. Whatever potency level
the team perceives itself to have, the managers' beliefs likely will coincide. This leads to the fifth
research question and hypothesis.
5. Is there a relationship between team members' perceptions of team potency and
managers' perceptions of team potency?
H5: Team members' ratings of team potency will be positively correlated with managers'
ratings of team potency.
