Project Description

We develop and test a model of the determinants of executive coaching effectiveness. We examine the impact of coach and coachee characteristics on mediators including self-efficacy, knowledge, self-awareness, and feedback receptivity. We test the relationships among these constructs and individual and organisational outcomes. Our model explores whether two work environment characteristics, transfer climate and the existence of a supportive work group climate, act as moderators of relationships between coach and coachee characteristics and the mediators. Our research program will collect data on a key leadership development tool that has the potential to aid in building both employee well-being and organisational performance.
