Abstract: The study is about the effects of a manager's positive or negative moods to the group's affective tone and group processes. For this research, the particular group processes that were considered are effort expenditure, task strategy and coordination. For moods to be transferred, the group must undergo the process of mood contagion which starts primarily by imitating the nonverbal cues from the manager that signifies his/her mood. The thesis aims to understand which among the two groups of moods is more beneficial to the group. The variables are correlated and studied in a quantitative manner. An exploratory study plan was used to give more information about the correlations of variables, along with the demographics. Correlation on the demographics of age and sex revealed that the two aforementioned variables are not significant to the sample‟s view on their individual susceptibility and the way they perceive their managers expressiveness on moods. From the data gathered, there seems to be more preference for positive moods over the negative. The sample believes that for them to have a positive affective tone, the manager must have a positive mood. Moreover, the sample perceives that across all three group processes, positive moods produce better results. For future studies, the researcher recommends that a bigger sample under a wider set of managers can be used. Prospective researchers can also evaluate groups that are handled by higher levels of managers. Other factors that affect groups such as group norms, nature of the job, job shifts among some, can also be subject to researches similar to this study in the future.
