Résumé : This paper examines the role of an emotional climate of joy and of an emotional climate of fear on team creativity and innovation. First, a definition of emotional climate is proposed. Second, a model is proposed combining emotional climate and Farr, Sin, and Tesluk’s (2003) model of team creativity and innovation. Emotional climates of joy and fear are emergent states that will operate both as an input in interaction with non affective inputs, and as an outcome interacting with task-related outcomes, influencing transition, action, and interpersonal processes in a creativity and innovation context. Third, the role of the intensity of emotions composing the emotional climate is addressed. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
