With executive coaching, it is generally accepted that goal-setting is a necessary condition for successful coaching. Self-efficacy is linked to performance through its effect on goals. Self-efficacy is the belief that one has the personal capabilities and resources to meet the demands of a specific task and situation.
As a coach, I wondered if coaches should place more emphasis on how to set and monitor goals, or how to enhance clients’ self-efficacy? As a researcher, looking through the lens of social cognitive theory, one point kept surfacing: Self-efficacy is a key casual variable in performance.
This webinar will present the findings and conclusions of my dissertation research and the theory-based strategies that coaches use. We will review the coaching model that I developed and look at applied examples. We will discuss the strategies that you currently are using.
