The relationship between employee goals at the individual level and firm performance at the department level was examined across a variety of industries. Specifically, three types of employee goals-learning, performance, and do-your-best-were studied with regard to department-level performance. Employee learning goals were related to higher levels of department-level performance than were performance or do-your-best goals. The relationship between the level of employee goal commitment and department level performance was also examined, and found to be positive and significant. The theoretical and practical significance of these findings for leaders in an economically turbulent environment are discussed.
