Abstract: Framework: Team effectiveness is one of the most important constructs in the organizational world, as it helps companies to develop new ways of achieving their goals. In this paper, our focus was on the conditions that can lead to teamwork effectiveness. Purpose: The purpose of the current study was to examine the mediating role of team learning behaviors in the relationship between team resilience on overall team effectiveness criteria: team performance, team viability, quality of group experience and team process improvement and the effects of team resilience on team learning behaviors. Method: This study adopted a cross-sectional design and was conducted at the team level of analysis where 535 individuals from 90 Portuguese teams were surveyed. Hypotheses were tested through mediation analysis. Results: The results showed a positive relationship between team resilience and team learning behaviors. Moreover, our results revealed that team learning behaviors act as mediator variable between the input (team resilience) and the outcome (team effectiveness in the four criteria analyzed- team performance, team viability, quality of group experience and team process improvement). Conclusion: Our findings emphasized the importance of team resilience and of team learning behaviors on team effectiveness (team performance, team viability, quality of group experience and team process improvement). Therefore, team resilience and team learning behaviors contribute to organizations becoming more effective in the achievement of their goals.
