Abstract:     
Teams are increasingly becoming primary in the way employees in organizations conduct work. The effects of similarities and differences among team members in projectbased work influence every aspect of that work. We explored the relationship between team composition attributes and team members’ team leadership and facilitation behaviors, drawing from the literature on similarity-attraction effect. Data from two time points that are 12-week apart were collected from 144 professional employees working in 48 work teams to test the study’s hypotheses. Using HLM 6.0 [45]the current study shows that when it comes to team composition, members of a team who are similar on the personal style traits extraversion and neuroticism, that have an affective tone, demonstrate greater team leadership and facilitation behaviors, we refer to as team process behaviors. We provide implications for generating team leadership and facilitation behaviors in project-based work.
