We applied the motivated information processing in group (MIP-G) model to examine the relationship between team learning orientation and team performance by conducting a field study of 226 employees in 35 teams. The results showed that team learning orientation was positively related to team performance, and that team task reflexivity played a partially mediating role in this relationship. Further, team leader–member exchange differentiation strengthened the positive effect of team learning orientation on team task reflexivity, which, in turn, strengthened the indirect effect of team learning orientation on team performance via the mediator of team task reflexivity. From a theoretical standpoint, we have extended the literature on team-level performance, and from a practical perspective, our results have implications for the management of teams.
