AbstractThis study applies the paradox lens to identify tensions caused by multiple tasks, divergent opinions, and different roles that top management teams (TMTs) typically cope with and introduces the tertius iungens (TI) perspective as a resolution to the paradoxical tensions. We argue that the paradoxical tensions may have contradictory implications for firm performance but TI-oriented chief executive officers (CEOs) may help bridging the conflicting aspects of a tension, leading to better firm performance. The results based on a survey sample of TMTs in 93 Chinese new ventures support our arguments, showing that the influence of TMT polychronicity, dissent, and role diversification on firm performance is more positive when the team is led by a TI-oriented CEO. We discuss implications for both paradox and tertius iungens perspectives in the context of strategic leadership research.
