Abstract [en]

We develop a theory of emotions in inter-firm relationships with specific attention to the context of coopetition in which firms deal with the paradox of simultaneous cooperation and competition with each other. Our theory articulates the antecedents, characteristics, consequences and management of emotions in coopetition. We propose that the cognitive appraisal of paradox in coopetition leads to emotional ambivalence – an emotional state of experiencing simultaneous positive and negative emotions. We introduce the concept of emotional ambidexterity that enables the focal firm to accept, allow, and maintain emotional ambivalence at a moderate level, and enhance performance. Applying an emotional lens on coopetition enhances scholarly understanding of the paradoxical phenomenon and provides intriguing avenues for further research.
