Abstract and Keywords

We provide an integrative review of extant research related to talent (i.e., stars) in the team context. Beginning with a focus an the influences of stars on teams, we review research on stars’ roles as boundary spanners, in which stars may leverage their favorable network positions to enhance their teams’ access to external resources. We then examine stars’ interpersonal influences within teams, which can be positive (e.g., collaboration and mentoring) or negative (e.g., imposing constraints on colleagues’ opportunities). In the second section, we focus on the effects of the team context on stars. Here, we examine how characteristics of the team environment influence the value of stars’ contributions. We then examine the effects of complementarity and redundancy resources on stars’ behavioral propensities and performance outcomes. Finally, we draw on patterns of findings in the extant research we reviewed to identify critical directions for future research on stars and teams.
