Another potential generator of a toxic emotional climate can take the form of organizational norms regarding emotional display. Diefendorff and Greguras (2009), for example, describe how organizationally mandated emotional display rules impose sometimes debilitating emotional strain on employees, leading to burnout and deviance. In this respect, Ashkanasy and Daus (2002) describe a situation where an employee who is under stress, but is still required to engage in positive emotional displays, might also engage in deviance (sabotage in this instance).
For example, in dissecting the relationship between different forms of CWB and emotions, Spector, Fox, Penney, Bruursema, Goh, and Kessler (2006) reported that upsetting emotions, including anger and fury, were related to abuse against other employees (interpersonal deviance) and the organization itself (production deviance). This suggests that these two forms of CWB may share similar underlying motives, with the former being a direct form of aggression against others, and the latter being a form of displaced aggression.
