In this special issue, five papers address the study of emotions from a variety of viewpoints. Two are theoretical essays that deal respectively with emotion and creativity and the relationships between individual and team performance. Three are empirical studies that canvas the emotion-performance nexus across levels of analysis: within-person, between-person, and in groups. Between them, the five papers present a strong case for the nexus of emotions and performance, but more importantly provide a platform for potentially fruitful future research in this burgeoning area.
