Abstract:A cultural explanation for the mixed findings about the relationship between top management team (TMT) job-related diversity (in educational and functional backgrounds) and organizational innovation was tested in three studies. Paradoxical climate refers to the shared perceptions that contradictory viewpoints can coexist fruitfully. Archival data of publicly listed firms and responses to a survey of Chinese managers were analyzed to show that regional (sub-national) and team paradoxical climate strengthens the positive relationship between diversity and innovation. This may be because it strengthens the positive effects of diversity on cognitive benefits while minimizing the social costs brought by diversity. Such effects of team paradoxical climate on team processes are generally supported by the third survey study on intellectual teams.
